If the configuration fails, CRD will offer to install a local Access database. CRD will operate in this instance. However, advanced users will likely prefer to run CRD using the SQL Server install. If the configuration fails and you would like to use the SQL Server install, verify that you have met all the CRD prerequisites.
  • If successful, pop-up will appear: Operation completed successfully. Click OK.
