Specified Host name is invalid

Hi everybody:

I need some help I just installed Nav 2013 and i’m getting the next error: “The specified host name JAZMIN-LAP\NAVDEMO is not valid”.

My environment:

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 for 64b

SQL Server 2012.

Server Name: JAZMIN-LAP

Instance: NAVDEMO

SQL and NAV services are started.

I’ve been looking where change or reconfigure the host name and which would be the right host name in this case

I get this message from the event viewer:

Type: Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Types.NavServerAddressInvalidConfigurationException

SuppressMessage: False

FatalityScope: None

Message: The specified host name JAZMIN-LAP\NAVDEMO is not valid.

In the folder: C: \ Users \ username \ AppData \ Roaming \ Microsoft \ Microsoft Dynamics NAV \ 70
is the ClientUserSetting.config file

The RTC could not start because it has
