HI, I had installed the POS and was was working correctly. Now when i start, its just loading and loading.
what could be the problem? Please help.
Try ALT+TAB to see if you have pressed on the loading screen and brought it in front of the connection string message box.

That could be anything… we would need to see the full error report.
