I have a Windows application (Visual Studio 2013) with an .mdf database. If I am in the VS development environment, I can open the .mdf file without problems but when I run the application with F5, I get the attached error message. On the pc is also SQL Server 2016 Management Studio installed. As far as I can see from Google, the problem is that SQL Server does not permit remote access. Is this right? If yes, how do I do to allow remote access?

Thanks in advance!
