Creating a database using Windows Authentication

In the 'Administration and Monitoring Console', I'm trying to create a database for the first time.
When I try to create a database, I get the error message, ' Login failed for user  'domain\computername$'. Recommendation: Use database server authentication'

The problem is that it's using the computer account. 
I have access to SQL server through a windows account.
For SQL Server Management Studio, I am able to use a windows account to login (shift + right-click, run as different user).

I cannot login to windows using this windows account as it's disabled for remote login.
How do I make Abbyy to use this windows account instead of the 'domain\computername$' account?

Sorry for the late response. Unfortunately, I could not find the similar issue in our database. 

Could you please try to run your browser under windows account?

Or add the Administrator account of this computer to the SQL Server.

If this does not help you, as a workaround you can create the database under different account and then run all the FC services under it.

Let me know if this has worked for you.

Otherwise we will forward this issue to our second line support.
