Installing MS SQL Server for T-Scan v10

Server Installation

T-Scan v10 uses Microsoft's SQL Server as its database engine. You must install SQL where you plan to locate your T-Scan database before upgrading T-Scan software on your operatory workstations. This is a one-time only step–once SQL is installed, future T-Scan updates will return to a single step process!
