2. Navigate to the folder where you have extracted the installer and run Setup .exe.
The Welcome screen is displayed.
3. Click Next.

the license key in the space provided.

7. In the Configure Database screen, you can choose one of the following options:
•Install New Database Server (Microsoft SQL Express 2008 R2) — Select this option if you do not
have any supported version of Microsoft SQL Server installed on the system. Proceed to step 8.
•Use Existing Database Server (SQL Server Express or full ) — Select this option if you have
already installed a supported version of Microsoft SQL Server on the system. Proceed to step 9.
For more information on supported SQL version, see Software Requirements.

created on SQL Server.
a. SQL Server Authentication is selected by default. Select Windows Authentication if you want to
connect to the WDM database (RapportDB) using your Windows login credentials.
NOTE: Even if you choose Windows Authentication, the WDM installation always requires
the SQL Authentication to access the SQL database. In a standalone installation, after you
complete the WDM database installation, the WDM Installer takes care of assigning the
Active Directory user to the database and the same user is used for installing the WDM
b. Username — The default username is rapport. You can retain the default or change the user
c. Password — Enter the password to connect to the database.
d. Confirm Password — If you are creating a new user, enter the password again.
