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

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 10\
  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 10\
  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.

If you already purchased the license and already activated it on old computer then after doing the transfer of data you need to deactivate the license on old computer using menu Help - Deactivate - Notify.

Then your license will be available for activation on new computer.
