This message is generated when the password in the web.config file in the AnyView Web Application folder is incorrect.  This password was entered when the Web Setup application was run.  During the Web Setup, 'SQL Server' was selected as the method for 'Database Authentication' and a Login and Password were entered.


In order to enter the correct login and password for database authentication, the AnyView IDS Web Setup application, 'AccountableSoftwareInc.AnyViewInstall.WebAppInstall.exe' must be re-run.  In a default installation the path to this application is:


C:\Program Files\Accountable Software Inc\AnyView IDS\Setup\AccountableSoftwareInc.AnyViewInstall.WebAppInstall.exe


  1. Run 'AccountableSoftwareInc.AnyViewInstall.WebAppInstall.exe' and the AnyView Web Application Setup window will open. 
  2. Reenter the SQL Server login and password in the 'Connection Information' tab.
  3. When the 'Finish' button is pressed it will write new entries to the web.config file.
