C:\ProScore5. If you also have ProScore v4 installed, DO NOT

ProScore v5 installed on your computer, you should make sure this folder is
the same as the folder ProScore v5 was previously installed into.
Click the Browse button if you need to change the installation
folder. Click the Next button to continue.
- You are now prompted to select which components to install. The
Nexus Database Server must be installed on at least one computer. If
you are planning to use ProScore on multiple computers and have them share a
common database then you do not need to install the Nexus Server on each
computer. Just the main computer. If this is just a single
computer installation, then leave both choices selected. Click the Next button to continue.

Since this is the first time, the list of servers will be empty. Click
the Locate New Server(s) button to search for an existing server.
- This screen displays all the Nexus Database Servers that exist on your
network. There may be more than one entry displayed. Each entry
corresponds to a database server that responded to ProScore's request.
The default entry that you should select is
NexusDB@127.0.0.1. This entry corresponds to the database
server that is installed on your computer. If you are using ProScore
on a network and are sharing a common database server, then you should
select the entry that corresponds with the main computer. If the entry
that you are looking for does not appear on the list, then it may be that
the server is on a different network or a firewall is blocking the scan
request. Click OK after making your selection.
