Vista and 2008

administrator, programs don't run with administrative privilege by
default. To a run program with administrative privilege you must
right-click on the EXE and select the option to Run As
Administrator. This is what you must do with prtracker.exe to
perform the configuration step the first time you run it.
After configuration, when you start PR-Tracker a
connect dialog is displayed. This dialog enables to user to choose
from one of three ways to connect to PR-Tracker. The option that you
chose depends on the
Installation Topology you deploy.
Upgrading from version 5.xx
Unlike previous upgrades, upgrading to PR-Tracker
6.0 will not convert your existing database in place. After you

5.xx database. The import tool will only read the 5.xx database
while importing it to the location of the 6.0 database.
