Effectively with the new 4POS, you will "move" the voucher / registration to the new pc & then simply change the company name in General parameters...

The "move" is explained here :

Teamviewer chat transcript for a PAID Teamviewer session :

Support4POS (12:23 PM):
Are you there?
@Scrapbooking (12:23 PM):
Support4POS (12:24 PM):
Let me show you how the error happens...
So, 4POS is saying that the controller version is different from backoffice....
Let check
4POSBackoffice dated 12/10/2018
4POSController dated 05/02/2018
That is the issue!
Now, go to 4POSUpgrade & run 4POSSqlEXEUpgrades.exe while all 4POS programs are closed
No 4POS programs...
Clearly states that do not change the folder....
BUT, yours is showing c:\cd4pos....
Now, test
As you can see all working...
Anything else?
@Scrapbooking (12:32 PM):
i can not befieve it, i think get so upset and angry that i miss read and did not pay attention.
Support4POS (12:32 PM):
I think it is a trust issue....
Customers think we do it on purpose to make it difficult & as you can see - very simple
@Scrapbooking (12:34 PM):
Thanks, think I will be able to update sales
Support4POS (12:34 PM):
Doing some cleaning up...
Support4POS (12:47 PM):
Oops - your database has been wiped out...

You did a repair or reinstall?
@Scrapbooking (12:48 PM):
did a repair
Support4POS (12:48 PM):
What was the last date that everything worked?
Looks like the 5th of October?
@Scrapbooking (12:50 PM):
that correct and on the 8th in the morning i was promped to do the update
Support4POS (12:50 PM):
ok - lets recover the backup
No backups on the 5th
Trying the first backup on the 13th...
@Scrapbooking (12:52 PM):
no last was the 29 sept the rest i am not sure
Support4POS (12:52 PM):
Lets see the 13th first
@Scrapbooking (12:52 PM):
Support4POS (12:52 PM):
23 months in that backup...
So on the 13th already reloaded / wiped the database - showing 4pos demo...
Lets try the 29th...
Support4POS (12:59 PM):
No data showing for the 29th backup
This backups was done AFTER monthend
Trying 26th...
Support4POS (01:14 PM):
Ok, so the backup on the 26th is ok
Transactions for the 27th & 29 is there so we can recoveer them
Can we do it as 1 dayend?
@Scrapbooking (01:14 PM):
thanks, yes
Support4POS (01:14 PM):
1 sec
Support4POS (01:18 PM):
Your backup folder does not exist as shown on screen - that is why no backups are done automatically!
Do not change the folder...
backup has been set to F: but no F: drive on your pc....
Changing to c:\4pos...
Support4POS (01:24 PM):
Ok - all transactions recovered, backup fixed & monthend done...
Now recovering transactions for October
Support4POS (01:31 PM):
All done
Transactions up the 5th recovered & dayend done.
You need to capture invoices from the 5th.
Bear in mind that all products created, price changes done etc since the 26th (Backup recovered) will need to be re-done
@Scrapbooking (01:32 PM):
thank you,
Ok got that, just to be clear i have to do a back up to external say once a week just to be safe
Support4POS (01:34 PM):
Yes, you can do that manually by copying c:\4pos\backup to your external drive
@Scrapbooking (01:35 PM):
ok will do so and in future I wil READ AND RE READ the file description, and not ASUME that it is correct in the first place
Support4POS (01:35 PM):
last suggestion - when you have an issue - relax & dont start doing all sorts of steps...

As stated on many topics...

1. Which update / upgrade did you do?
2. The 4POS Upgrades does not "TOUCH" the database!
3. Restore functionality is part of 4POS

To whom it may concern
My system failed and I was prompted to upgrade to the latest update.  After installation, all of my open tables are missing. I need urgent assistance if possible as I cannot cash out my customers

Kind regards,

Juna Niemann

My latest toy - voice recording!

Should have done this years ago!


4POS Support case #1.

Threats etc all just to get free support!

Facts :

1. Did a "move" on 4POS Software.
2. Did not confirm the move.
3. Reloaded 4POS Software - demo version.
4. Most likely restored the backup from 2nd pc & then received a "Piracy" message.
5. Expect support on Whatsapp with NO support contract
6. Sends wrong voucher number so no way of determining who, what, when...
7. Then of course - blackmail - if you do not do free support then ...

Simply put - totally unreasonable!
