Installation of the Network Version of the software:
Please see the following notes on how to setup the software on the network:
The program works on network under file server architecture. The package (application and data) need to be installed only on one machine. On other machines only system files are needed so that you should install it on workstations/other machine in a temporary directory and remove the directory. System files are copied to the system directory. Since the software will use file server architecture the login is redundant, only thing is that the user should be able to read and write to the program directory.
Please see the guidelines below to install the package on network.
1. On network the package works under File-Server architecture.
2. If you are using server then install first on server in the default program directory. If you are using back-to-back network install on the fastest machine in the default directory as specified during installation.
3. On the client / other machines you only need the systems files so install the program in a temporary directory. System files will be copied to the system directory. So delete this temporary directory.
4. Map the drive on which you have installed in default program directory (server..) onto you client machine using a drive letter. If on server you installed in c:\.... then map this C: drive onto the client machine to a suitable drive letter i.e., F:. Check reconnect at logon.
5. On the client machine change the properties of the icons and the menu items so that the target points to this drive F:. Also change the start up directory for the icon / menu to the directory on F:
6. Run the application. It will run on the drive of the server using the databases on that drive. However, a new instance of application and data files will be created on your local machine automatically. Whole of this procedure is transparent to the user.
7. Do not perform data test from the client machine, it will disrupt other connected users, data test should be performed on server when no other users are connected.
