Install instructions

  • Create a empty database on your SqlServer instance. We recommand, for security purpose, to create a new user in SQL Server and only give him access to the Bulksign database.

  • Go to c:\bulksigninstall\tools\database\ and run "DatabaseTester.exe".

  • Replace the placeholders with the correct data :

{ServerName} - the SQL Server name

{Bulksign} - the database name

{Name} - the user name with which to connect to the database

{Password} - the password

Click "CONNECT and SAVE" to test the connection string. If data is correct, the message "Database connection is successfull " will be shown.

  • Open a powershell command line as administrator (open cmd.exe and type powershell)

  • Navigate to the folder where you unzipped bulksign.zip and run .\installpremise.ps1
