{Application Error}
The application was unable to start correctly (0x%lx). Click OK to close the application.

Identify the account that the ADSync service is running over, and then copy over model.mdf and modellog.ldf from C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\150\LocalDB\Binn\Templates to %ServiceProfilePath%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances\ADSync2019. Alternatively, the AD Sync Service Repair Powershell script can be used to automate the process.

Update the AD Connect client to a supported version, and run the Azure AD Connect UI to update the synchronisation engine.
