Hi Carla,

Have tried to install DLN:Inspector.  Once I found out how to get DLN:CC to start (separate thread in DLN:CC section) I tried to start DLN:Inspector again and it came up with the first message shown below that the database had not been update for DLN:Inspector and to see the documentation for instructions. Checked online and in the installed program groups and could not spot the documentation. In the end I started DLN:Inspector 'without the DLN' and then, by clicking [Help] it opened the PDF.

I then followed the instructions (which I guess are OK for beta testing but possibly not ideal for end-users long term) but, when the update is run, it fails with the message shown in the second screenshot.

UPDATE:
Have found a short-term work-around.

I guess that there is a password embedded in the DLN applications, and if DLN:CC starts it must have the correct password.  I noticed that on the DLN:CC Admin menu there was a 'Run script' option, so I first of all tried running the 'createpg.sql' script from DLN:CC - the script started OK, but then failed because the three sub-scripts that created the sequences, tables and then inserted the ref data only had relative paths when called from within 'createpg.sql'.  So, I was going to modify a copy of 'createpg.sql' to embed the paths, but instead from within DLN:CC which was logged in to the database, I just ran the 'createsequence.sql', then 'createtable.sql' and finally 'insertlookupdata.sql' - all of which ran OK to completion. I can now start DLN:Inspector and connect to the DLN database.
