    After you choose Repair or Uninstall, Setup runs to completion with no further interaction. Your next option is to close Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Setup.

Removing the Demo Database

Setup does not remove the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Demo database. After you use Setup to remove Microsoft Dynamics NAV software from your computer, you must manually remove the demo database.

With SQL Server

Use SQL Server Management Studio to remove the Microsoft Dynamics NAV demo database, which is called Demo Database (7-0). By default, the database is installed to the NAVDEMO SQL Server instance.

If you have installed SQL Server with the guidelines in Installation Considerations for Microsoft SQL Server, then SQL Server Management Studio is already installed on your computer. Otherwise, update your SQL Server installation to include the Management Tools - Complete option for SQL Server.

With SQL Server Express

If you did not have SQL Server on your computer when you installed the demo database, then Microsoft Dynamics NAV Setup installed SQL Server 2012 Express Edition to host the database. To remove the demo database, follow these steps:

  1. From the Microsoft Download Center, download and install Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Management Studio Express.

  2. Use SQL Server Management Studio Express to remove the Microsoft Dynamics NAV demo database, which is called Demo Database (7-0). By default, the database is installed to the NAVDEMO SQL Server instance.
