The name of the computer has changed and if a server name was specified during the rehosting process instead of using [Local] for the server name.
1. Open the Medic Utility (Start > Programs > QuoteWerks > Tools & Information > Medic Utility) and then select Utilities > System Database Setup.
2. Change the Server Name to reflect the computer's name change.
3. Click OK.
4. Close the Medic and re-open to verify the change has taken place.
