What a mission to convert right?

Not true! Every customer we assist with the conversion makes the same basic mistakes!

Steps now in words seeing that customers simply don't watch the step by step video that we made :

1. Ensure you are running Windows 7 Service pack or better - meaning Windows 8, Windows 10 - any Versions...
2. If you are running Windows 7 :
2.1. Go into your control panel & click on System. If it states Windows 7 but NOT Service Pack 1 - you need to update your Windows
2.2. In the Control panel - Click on Windows update & do the updates! Even if it installs updates, go back & check if it states Services pack 1 - if not - click update again!
2.3. On some PC's you need to do this a few times - call Bill Gates & tell him it is a stupid idea - not us....

3. Now finally, once you have the latest Windows update - run the CD4POS.exe you have downloaded.
4. This will run smoothly & also might restart your pc - if so, restart & run it again unitil 4POS is installed!
5. Now open the 4POSBackoffice & ensure the conversion of Microsoft Access to Microsoft Sql completes.
6. If ANY errors pop up - NO, we cannot just know what the issue is - on some databases it is passwords, corruption, missing / faulty tables / duplicate records etc etc. We don't KNOW....
7. Well you are one of the lucky ones that get to pay us a measly R800 to sort out your database. & NO, we didn't design it that way to make some money - trust us - we have better things to do!
   (On some PC's we have to copy the database to our PC's because you don't have Microsoft Access or many other possibilities!)

8. Lastly - once you have installed, converted & got your 4POSBackoffice open - Check your data!!!!

In quite a few cases, we assisted through all the steps only to find customers in their wisdom has copied OLD data back - some from December 2017! Now, of course "someone" must have done that...

Lastly - come on people, where did the kindness go? What is all this aggression about?

Want to complain - call your mother - she will be kind enough to listen - we are only here to help with 4POS ....

Obviously a very frustrated Admin.....

It is not available on a trial - requires a 4POS licence & your 4POS server & the app must run on the same wireless network.

I was running on version 18.1.4 I think and today when i tried to open Backoffice I received a message to upgrade to the latest version. I closed all 4POS apps and clicked to upgrade. When everything was done and I tried to open Backoffice again the same upgrade message popped up. I tried this several times and it did the same thing. I decided to download the manual upgrade on the site and now I can't access anything. When I try to lopen domain controller it says '4POS Domain Controller must be run on server' and when I try to open Backoffice it says 'Location not found'.

I have tried to restore the Backup by copying the files directly to 4POS Server from the external backup but nothing. I am now in a complete panic and would appreciate any help.

Notification :

4POS now requires licencing on all PC's linked to the 4POS system.

Unlicenced backoffice pc's are no longer supported.

This has become neccessary due to all development done on the backoffice re SQL, Stock Control functionality, APP's etc.

From version 18.6.4 all App's & backoffice will be licenced with a voucher code & no other method.

We are confident that all users will understand the necessity.

Wish to automate your 4POS Backups?

This FREE utility will make a backup of all your SQL files & you can schedule a time as well.

It will create bak files of your database which can be reloaded in an emergency - if you do not have a 4POS Backup.....
