Database Repair

As of October 2018, the command line option for database repair is not functioning in the latest release. The only way to do a database repair is via the program's main menu. MAIN MENU -> DATABASE -> REPAIR

The program does not remove any data during the repair. The repair is done by a Microsoft provided utility.


The following is for historical purposes and is no longer accurate.

To do database repair without first starting HICSOAP,

  1. Click the START button in the lower, left hand corner of the WINDOWS screen
  2. Type "hicsoap"
  3. You'll see this. I added the red highlights.


This will do a database repair and then automatically launch HICSOAP.
