Enabling MSR Support
MSR support is enabled by installing Microsoft Point of Service for .NET v1.14.1 (POS for .NET). The download and installation instructions can be found here. Note: Only the Runtime Components feature is required—you do not need to install the SDK feature.
Once POS for .NET has been installed, start SIMS-TRC and open the Control Panel.
