Summary13646: Error after Database Query MSSQL

After succesfull installation of LimeSurvey a random database input results in an internal Servererror.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start LimeSurvey Webinterface

  2. try to change admin password
    2.1 succesfully enter "Current password:"
    2.2 succesfully enter "New password:"
    2.3 succesfully enter "Repeat new password:"

  3. when enter "Save" / "Save and close" no changes will be made and an wild error appears.
    CDbCommand failed to execute the SQL statement: SQLSTATE [42000]: [Microsoft] [ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server] [SQL Server] The implicit conversion of the char data type to
    binary is not allowed. Use the CONVERT function to execute this query.

  4. Same Error appears when trying to change the personal language setting

  5. Same Error appears when trying to change "email" or "full name"

Seems like it's not important what kind of data i want to change - the error stays
