I am getting the error: Cannot locate the database in the GIFTS.ini

In some cases after a workstation get installed they will get the error: cannot locate the database in the GIFTS.ini
1. Go to the workstation having the issue.
2. Go to C:\windows\gifts.ini  and rename the gifts.ini file to something other that gifts.ini - example: Oldgifts.ini
3. Browse out to the GIFTS / Alta file server and locate the Setup folder and open. Then locate the setup.exe and right click on it and run as Administrator.
4. Follow the install wizards instruction and take the default settings and complete the workstation install.
5. Ok out of the install and test by clicking on the GIFTS / Alta shortcut

NOTE: Once you have tested and can now access GIFTS or Alta program you can delete the oldgifts.ini
