The error message "login failed" suggests the a connection is created but that either
a) you not using windows authentication but the connection string is set for a proper login,
b) you're not using windows authentication and the username and/or password is wrong.
c) you are using windows authentication but the connection string is wrong (Connectionstrings) or

You should look into those scenarios.

The simplest way, I guess, would be to use Server Explorer in Visual Studio.
There you will see, if any, the database server and it's name.
You will find it in the View menu.
