SQL Server Credentials Problem

Last Modified: 2018-08-22
We're having some users get the following message, periodically, when using an internal, home-grown SQL Server application.
"You do not have sufficient credentials in SQL Server to use this program. Please contact the system admin."

Now I've searched all over the place, and I cannot find ANYTHING referencing this message. I see lots that reference one that uses the word "privileges", but not one with the word "credentials". I have no idea what this is about, or why no one else has, apparently, ever seen this message. I have no idea what this is about, or what to do about it. (I'm attaching a screen shot of the message.)

Anyone else ever hear of this?
