Follow these steps to resolve the issue on local desktop computers of end-users:

- Upgrade the web browser in use to the latest version. Note: Incognito mode is not supported.
- In the event, that the issue persists and Internet Explorer is in use, try disabling Protected Mode. The steps of this can be found in the following Microsoft Documentation: Change security and privacy settings for Internet Explorer 11.
- In the event, the issue persists on any web browsers, try clearing all-time browser history/cache (Passwords History is not necessary to be removed) and restart the computer. The steps of clearing the browser/history cache vary among web browsers. Refer to each browser's online help for steps to do this.
- In the event, the issue still persists, uninstall the application and remove the folder: [driveletter]:\[Users_username]\AppData\Local\VeevaCRMEngage\

In case the issue still persists, it is recommended to try using Google Chrome to test if the CRM Desktop Application is working with it. In the event, it works and the CRM Desktop Application is on the latest version (setup.exe is run), the issue is most likely caused by the unique company setup implemented around Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. Veeva has no control and authorization over such setups. It is recommended to contact the Local IT Administrator team in these cases.
- Uninstalling Veeva Applications with the legacy control panel is not supported, please use the new Windows 10 UI Control Panel in the event manual uninstallation is attempted.
