Vendors install applications and leave no login

A vendor installed an instance of SQL Server Express that supports an important application. Assume the vendor thought the Builtin\Administrators login was still a default for 2008 as it was for 2005.  The sa password is unknown.  How to gain access to the database server?

Added myself to the Windows Administrator Group.

The service owner is ‘Network Service’.

Still no connection but will keep testing ideas.
