Yes, errors due to the tables not existing. They would be expected. Look for InstantWP’s PHP error log. Perhaps something will display in that log file after Connections is activated.
But, also do as I suggested above, confirm that the database user that InstantWP creates has the create and alter table capabilities. If the database user does not have those you will never be able to install any plugin which installs custom tables… which is a lot of plugins.
Alternatively, move to a different local dev solution. Personally, I find it best to dev on an actual web host since the web hosting environment is more often configured correctly to allow WordPress to run correctly.
