Network Installations - General Information

Keystroke Software can be used over a network. The Keystroke data files are shared. Hardware such as printers, cash drawers, etc. may be shared too.

After Keystroke has been installed on the server by running Setup.EXE, run SetupWS.EXE from each workstation to install the required files on the local Windows computer. SetupWS.EXE should be run from a Mapped Network Drive (i.e. F:\Keystroke\SetupWS.EXE). It is not recommended to run SetupWS.EXE through Network and Sharing Center.

When new transactions or database records are created, the transaction number is not assigned until the transaction is saved, printed, or if an electronic payment is requested (Credit Card authorization), until the credit card processor response is received. This prevents transaction numbers from being duplicated and ensures that transaction numbers are assigned in the order they are completed. The transaction number on the item entry screen is displayed in parentheses to indicate that the displayed number may or may not be the number actually assigned to the transaction. The next available number is automatically assigned.

Note: Network Installers- do not restrict access to the folder in which Keystroke is installed. This includes the Keystroke program installation folder and all of its subfolders. Keystroke needs to be able to alter, create, delete, erase, and rename files at any time; therefore, every user must have full rights to the Keystroke installation folder and all underlying subfolders.
