Network Server Side Installation:
Use any PC running a compatible version of Windows. You may use a dedicated or non-dedicated computer. Plexis POS uses the Windows Peer-to-Peer networking topology that comes built into every Windows computer. You do not need to purchase Windows server software and there is nothing else to buy.
Follow these steps very closely. Obtain professional networking help if required. Run the downloaded program file BTFULL.EXE. The Plexis POS Installer will start automatically.
After Server Side Installation:
Share the ENTIRE Plexis POS Folder on your network server or main computer. Set Share Permissions to Full Control, Change and Read for Everyone on the Plexis POS folder. Right Mouse Click BT.EXE and set it to run as Administrator for ALL USERS. No additional steps are required to install Plexis POS on a Network Server.
Network Workstation Terminal Installation (Multi-User):
DO NOT install multiple copies of Plexis POS on the Workstations. Workstations MUST be mapped using the PREVIOUSLY shared folder name on the server.
From the Workstation (not the file server) open Windows File Explorer, choose View Details from the toolbar menu.
Browse to the shared Network Drive or Folder (POS 30). You will then see a file list. Install the Workstation drivers by running [BtWorkStationSetup.exe] on EACH and every Workstation.
After the Drivers are installed then RIGHT mouse click on BT.EXE then choose Send to Desktop. This will create an icon that can access the POS program over the network on the shared drive.
You must follow these instructions to the letter. Do NOT miss or skip a single step.
