when setting up V5 on my other PC everything was set up fine but the database string wasnt valid, so when restarting the database string box appears. I typed the correct string in, but it didnt work and did not save in the box that appeared, so when i restarted again the connection string had defaulted back to the incorrect one i first entered.
The only way i could change the connection string was to manually change it in the local settings text file, when i did this samba immediately opened correctly. As i typed exactly the same string in the pop up box when starting samba as I did manually in the text file i can only assume that the pop up box didnt actually save the the connection string i typed in
This could cause an issue for people who have an incorrect data string and dont know they can change it in the text file (which is in a hidden folder)
