I turned on ARPOS on computer at home how can I transfer settings and data on computer at work (restaurant)?

It's a very common case when users create menu items, categories, tables and other settings at home and then they transfer these settings and data on to computer at work (restaurant's computer).

This transfer is quite easy: all information is recorded in database files (*.fdb) and configuration files (*.cfg).

Therefore the transfer procedure is quite simple:

  1. On computer at home go to the following directory:
    \My Documents\Abacre Restaurant Point of Sale 9\
  2. Copy *.fdb and *.cfg files.
  3. Install Abacre Restaurant Point of Sale on computer at work.
  4. On computer at work go to the installation folder:
    \My Documents\Abacre Restaurant Point of Sale 9\
  5. Put there copied *.fdb and *.cfg files.
  6. Windows will ask you to override existing files. Click [Yes] button.
  7. Start Abacre Restaurant Point of Sale on your computer at work.
  8. Check again the hardware settings:
    Go to menu Configuration - Bill Configuration Printer and verify that right printer is selected. Verify also Pole (Line Display) and Cash Drawer.

What people are saying:
"For years we used one MS DOS restaurant POS system until we finally found a good Windows-based replacement: Abacre Restaurant Point of Sale. I compared it with many other programs and I stopped on ARPOS, because it's well-done and well-priced. So we bought touch screen monitors, new computers and ARPOS. The change from the old MS DOS system into new Windows-based system was dramatic: in ARPOS we use images for menu items for faster navigation, reports are amazing and the program itself is quite configurable and handy. Since that time I am a definitive fan of ARPOS and I recommend it to my business friends."
