Adding Workstations

Top  Previous  Next

Adding a workstation or to reconnect a workstation

to an currently running networked version of

Visual Jewelry Shopkeeper:

 

*) Verify that you have the correct number of network

VJS workstation licenses to add this workstation.

I.e. review your VJS invoice from Compulink which will

indicate how many stations are authorized.

 

*) Attach the workstation to the network.

I.e. physically connect it to the network and set

the Windows workgroup to the same as the main computer.

 

*) Map a network drive, something like K: or X:,  to the

shared network drive or shared folder on the file server.

Map this exactly the same way as the other workstations.

 

Open Computer or My Computer from Windows, and if necessary

choose Map a Network Drive and map a drive letter the way

the other computers have it set.

 

 

 

*) Run the VJS installation program -  X:\VISUALJS\INSTALL\VJSINSTALL.EXE

or  INSTALLVJS.EXE

 

- Open the mapped network drive, open the VISUALJS folder

open the INSTALL folder and run the installer program.

 

 

Then start VJS and choose More, Add a Company File

 

 

then choose Find Existing VJS Data

then select the right set of books.

 

 

It should find and suggest something like

the MAIN folder on the network (X:\VISUALJS\DATA\MAIN)

- but  for the MAIN part of this  location, you may

have selected a different folder name when it

was originally installed - so use that instead.

 

After you start VJS once or twice it may detect

that the other computers are using an updated

version of Shopkeeper in which case you will be prompted

to run the update - which you should do.
