Before NCOA can be used for the first time, it must be configured on the computer on which mSQL has been installed.
Locate NCOASetup.exe within the mSQL bin folder (for example, the default location is C:\Program Files\mSQL\bin for mSQL, and C:\Program Files (x86)\mDesktop\NCOA for mDesktop).
Right-click the file and select “Run as administrator”. Enter the details of a user with administrative privileges if required.
When the “NCOA Setup” window appears, click PAF Setup then Add New to create a new PAF account. Fill in the required details as necessary and follow the instructions. Select the new PAF in the list, click OK, then close the window. Please email or fax a signed copy of the PAF to 360Science. Please allow up to one week for your PAF to be approved by the USPS and your NCOA account to be set up.
Once your NCOA account has been created, re-run NCOASetup. Click Account to input details of your Account, which will have been provided by 360Science. Ensure these details are correct by using Test FTP. Click OK. Ensure all details displayed on the NCOA Setup window are correct, including the Account Statistics, then Close the window.
