Cannot backup or export database from SQL2017

Last Modified: 2020-09-30
I installed SQL2017 full version not realizing what the cost would be.  The trial has expired and we cannot afford the cost.

I set up SolarWinds using it and now Solarwinds will not open because the trial of SQL has expired.    

How do I get my database exported out of SQL so I can import it into a different SQL version?
