unable to complete initial basic configuration of ARM

when I get to the sql screen of basic configuration I get "Some problem with your database settings:
Server name or instance does not exist or is not available."

ARM install did not install SQL express so I installed it myself and then uninstalled and reinstalled ARM. Same deal.

What gives?

What is the name of the instance? If you're using the default instance, leave the name empty.
If you've given the instance a name, use that one (ARM's SQL installation uses SOLARWINDS_ARM)

Here's what it looks like in my local test-machine:

The local database should always be reachable, missing permission should give a different error message.
