Answer / Solution

On the first start of SpaceObServer you can configure the database connection used by SpaceObServer the storage of scan data. At "Tools > Options > System > Database" you can change the database connection.
If you want to use a SQL Server database to for data storage, your computer has to be connected to a server on which a MS SQL Server is available. Another possibility is that you have installed a MS SQL Server locally on your computer. In addition, you need a valid user account (username and password) for database access.

A free version of the MS SQL Server is available from Microsoft as SQL Server Express Edition. You can download this version free of charge from the internet or use the MS SQL Installer integrated in SpaceObServer at "Tools > Options > System > Database".
