Error connecting with SQL (A network-related or instance-specific error... )

This error message appears every time I try to connect Bizagi with SQL :

A network-related or instance-specific error accured while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error:40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

would anyone help please??

Is SQL Server online? Can you connect via SQL Server Management Studio using the same credentials Bizagi is using? If so, open the properties of your instance and verify in "connections" page that "allow remote connections" is checked.
