Configure Database File

After installing HICSOAP and starting it the first time, you will be prompted whether you want to create a new database or connect to an existing database.

Regardless, of which you want to do, I recommend selecting CREATE A NEW DATABASE. Then verify the program is working well by opening and closing it a few times to make sure there aren't any surprises.

After it is working well you can change the database file that is opened by default. Before doing that you will need to find your database file. If you have an existing installation on another workstation then you can determine the database used by that installation. If that isn't the case then you could search all relevant computers for files end in HDF.

If you are recovering from a crashed computer this could be more difficult.
