I used BlogEngine.NET temporarily with a XML data store while I was getting a theme setup. Now I switched to SQL Server. The login Admin / admin fails. The password field in the database is blank. What am I missing?

If the password in the DB is blank, you should be able to log in with the default password, "admin".  If you just cleared out the password value in the DB, you might need to re-start the blog since the old value might be cached in memory.  Making any change to the web.config file (add a space, etc) will re-start the blog.
