Doing a Windows "Repair" on your 4POS.

It is critical that you have a backup to do this option!

1. Go into control Panel - programs & Features
2. Click on 4POS & select repair
3. 4POS will now be reset to a "Demo" version
4. Open 4POSBackOffice register LATER!
5. Under utilities, restore your LATEST 4POSBackup (Master password explained in the 4POS Manual!)
6. Reopen 4POSBackoffice & Check your data!
7. Open 4POSController
8. Do an Update POS - Update all from your 4POSBackoffice
9. Open 4POSScan / 4POSTouch

Ps. If you have missing sales transactions, they can be retrieved from c:\4posserver\data\Server or any of the POS folders. Suggest you ask a qualified 4POS Tech to assist. (obviously not for free)

Also, ALL backoffice price changes, settings, Customer & Supplier info that you have done SINCE the backup will have to be redone!
