Have you created an ODBC system DSN already ? If not, pls proceed to Control
Panel and create one that points to the Emerald database in SQL Server.

Can you send me a copy of the log file so I can better help you ?

internet domain name, not an NT domain name. As such, please specify as the domain in Emerald Admin.
