If the PAM Database installation fails in Windows 8 & 10. You may just need to restart your PC and try again as SQL installation often requires this.


  • We Recommend for Windows 7, 8 or 10 -Turn Off Virus Software and Right Click on installation file that was Downloaded and “Run as Administrator”
  • Make sure you only install the same modules as you had before (unless you have purchased more)
  • If installing to a new computer you will need an unlock code.
