Hi All,

I am facing problem while running the RunPopulate.cmd or Runpopulate2.cmd, as this command is importing the solutions in CRM but after that when it moves to DBPopulator\dbpopulator.exe UserPopulate.xml it starts failing and gives error message as :-

Try to run the .cmd file with Administrator privileges. Start ---> Cmd (Run as administrator). Then run the Runpopulation.cmd from the cmd window.
