Step 1: Create a Windows username prtracker
The steps for creating a Windows user depend on whether the computer acting as the PR-Tracker server is a domain controller or not. If you don't know if the server is a domain controller, click the start menu and check the popup menu for Programs | Administrative Tools | Active Directory Users and Computers. If that menu item exists, the server is a domain controller. Using a server that is not a domain controller is recommended for better security.

Step 2: Configure PRTRACK.DLL under component services
Step 3: Share the NETSETUP folder with share name PRTRACKER
By default, the NETSETUP folder is installed at C:\Program Files\PR-Tracker\PRTRACKERDB\NETSETUP. Using Explorer, locate the folder for NETSETUP and right click on the folder. Select Sharing... from the popup menu (if you don't see Sharing... then you need to login as an administrator). Share the folder with share name PRTRACKER and set permissions so that the right people have read privilege.
Step 4: Optionally configure SQL SERVER
This step is only necessary if you plan to use SQL Server as the database provider. By default PR-Tracker stores the database in Access 2000 format. PR-Tracker installs all the components required to use Access 2000 as the database provider, but if you want to use SQL Server as the database provider, the computer acting as the PR-Tracker server must have SQL server installed and SQL Server must be configured to work with PR-Tracker. See Configuring SQL Server.
