Windows-specific DBMS errors

When running Desktop on Windows, PowerShell 5.1+ is required and it must be on the path for the application to function optimally. Possible issues related to PowerShell are for example that the DBMS will not start or that you are unable to change or set a password for your DBMS.

In that case, you need to find environment variables in the System Properties menu and manually update your paths.
