Improve "Force Creating SQL Database before PI AF Install"
When doing a fresh installation of AF Server, and either the "Validate SQL Connection" option or other Software like PI Notifications, RTQP Engine are selected, the installation cannot be started when the AF SQL Database is not called "PIFD".
As the Installer is looking for a SQL Database with a hardcoded name, it throws one of the errors described here:
1) Further specify the error messages so that the user exactly knows what is causing this error message.
2) Add an option in the installer to look for a SQL Database named differently
