If you have any
questions in regards to how to install it please feel free to email
us, there is no charge for support through email.
*Our customers from Canada reported that zip codes that contain
letters rather than numbers failed to work with our software.
We have solved this problem.
1) Is there any extra charge for using multiple instances of FSS in
the networked environment? No, there is no extra charge,
this software comes standard with ability to work in the network
where multiple computers could access the same data and manipulate
2) Your software failed to install. Answer, you must download
and install Microsoft .NET framework version 2.0 or later for our
software to work, or to even install. If .NEt 2.0+ fails to
install then there is really nothing we can do.
3) How to setup basic store information? Goto
Setup/Properties. Next to store_name, store_address,
store_phone, store_email, etc... put in your store's information.
Do not modify anything that you do not understand there, it will
lead to your software not to start the next time around. Do not
forget to press SAVE or Update button after modifying each field.
4) If you need to tax your deliveries then goto setup/properties
and next to the field tax_delivery substitute 0 for 1.
Basically put 1 instead of zero into the field of tax_delivery.
Press update. Exit. Restart the software.
5) You do not have to press the "new" button in the middle of the
screen, next to the order at the times when you are creating
customer and order. You only use that button if you are
creating a new order for an existing customer.
6) To make it work in the networked environment, install the
software on each machine in the network and choose one to be your
main computer. Make the folder where the software installed
at as "shared." From remote computers in the FSS software
goto File/Open, and enter the remote path along with the
database1.mdb at the end to a location of where the main computer
is located at on your network.
7) Phone numbers do not match the number that you use in there.
Currently the default version comes with a (847) 123 3567 ext 1234
phone number format, basically area code then the number. If
you have some other form of formatting your phone number then email
to us and we will let you know what properties to modify so that
the phone number would work the way you want it to work.
8) If you already been using a trial version and want to upgrade,
then make sure to back up the file called "database1.mdb" to a safe
location. Upgrading usually requires for you to uninstall a
previous installation of the software. You can do so by going
to add/remove programs.
9) Some items from the menu don't work, what seems to be the
problem. We have designed our software with some room for
expansion so there are some items in the menu that are currently
disabled, but you can still use our software to the fullest without
using these items.
The new version is missing many features that the version 3.x has
had, so if you are using 3.x do not install the 4.x just yet.
Nevertheless, we are working on adding these features in. If you
download the software now we will upgrade you to the latest version at
no extra charge. We do not have a manual for
the version 4.0.2, even though the manual for version 3.0 is still
available. We offer some limited customer support via.
firstname.lastname@example.org We do not offer any customer support
over the phone.
Features we are working on and that are coming soon, from top to
bottom in the order that they will come out.
1) Export of information to Microsoft excel/quicken
2) Integration with Microsoft Streets and Trips
3) Setup manual, Installation Manual, Network installation manual,
Template modification manual.
4) We are in talks with callerid.com on
integrating their product with our software. Using their caller
id product will allow our software to automatically bring up a screen
with an existing client whenever one of your existing clients call
you. We are not going to charge anything extra for that feature,
however the device from callerid will run you at $220 if you would
order it through us (due to discounted pricing), or $250 if you order
it directly through callerid. This is not something we are going
to make money from it will be there for your convenience. You do
not have to buy or use that feature in order to use our software.
Let us know if that is something anyone of you would be interested in.
You will be upgraded to the latest version at no extra charge,
whenever we will come out with it.
All of our existing clients are being upgraded to the latest versions
at no extra charge.
You should understand that you will have to figure out how to
install/ setup and work in the software without manuals.
Feel free to email us with any questions that you might have.
