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
- 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.
