Try disabling the proxy server in IE; remove ALL checks in the proxy config page (automatic settings, use a script, use a proxy).

If that works, ensure that your proxy list has an exclusion for the CRS server.

Hi Aaron

That seemed to help a little as the error changed to "A Database Connection Error 5051 error appears".  I have tried adding the DSN entry that the support docs speak about but it continue to fail.

Any other thoughts?  Are you aware of the minimum privileges on windows a user requires to be able to run the application?

No specific rights are needed.

You don't need to configure the user for any rights on the server or workstation other than:

- Standard user on the workstation

- Grant reporting rights via AppAdmin as usual

Despite being in mixed mode, the HRC client still connects using Windows Auth so there's no real difference.

Can you post up your HRC ini file?

What changes have you made other than setting AUTH=1 and setting mixed mode on the server? I've never had to create a DSN.

I am seeing this same error after switching to mixed-mode authentication Running CCX7 SR5. It appears that any HR clients that were installed prior to the mixed-mode change are working with the AUTH=1 setting, but any installed after the update come back with the db connection error 5051.
