When setting up Myriad Playout v5 the first time, you may choose to run Myriad Playout in "Local Evaluation" Mode. This is quick and easy way to get Myriad up and running without needing to install and configure Microsoft SQL Server. It also helps you by choosing some default settings.
You will need to have Microsoft LocalDB installed, but many PC's already have it and if not it's a very easy download and install - you can download it from here
One important thing to remember though, is that the Database that you create is only available "locally" - i.e. only on the PC you are installing Myriad onto. You cannot access that database from across the network.
For testing or if you only ever plan to run locally this should not present an issue, but if you do later decide you want to use the database across the network you will need to install SQL Server and migrate your database across. This is not an easy task, but Broadcast Radio Technical Support can offer help and guidance on how to achieve it.
If you need any further information, please don't hesitate to ask.
