The mySQL error occurs when a specific service of the Prescreen software does not start after running the software. The reason can be the software not starting correctly or an antivirus software deleting it all together. 

  

Step 1: Anywhere on your PC, press the [ctrl] + [alt] + [del] keys. Open “task manager” from the list of options.

 

Step 2: Open the Services tab, find the service in the image below and check if it is “stopped”. Right click on the service and click start. 

 

 

Step 3: If not present in the list of services, go to the following file location on the device to check if the service installed:

This PC > Local Disk (C:) > Users > [User] > AppData > Roaming > OneScreen Prescreen > mySQL > bin

 

Step 4: If the service and/or folder are not present, the antivirus software may have stopped the complete installation. Hence, the Prescreen software will need to be uninstalled and then reinstalled, while turning the antivirus software off during the entire process.

Step 6: As a confirmation for complete uninstallation, go to the following file location and look for the OneScreen Prescreen folder:

If the folder is absent, the uninstallation was successful.
