Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

  • Need help to install my alpha5 v9 webserver

    1. I'm looking for someone who can help me install my alpha5 v9 webserver.
    2. As noted below, I will also need a little help to make sure that my developer application can update to the webserver.
    3. And verify my database that was working works off the newly installed webserver.
    So I wanted to see if this is something that you might be able to help me with
    If yes, what is your availability?
    and what cost would you propose? I noticed you had some pricing on your website. does that apply?
    I prefer a remote access through teamviewer or something similar so I can see what the setup looks like. I think they call that mentorship at

    I have my developers application installed and it works
    I don't have the webserver installed.
    Alpha Customer Service said I shouldn't install the webserver on the same system as my developers application
    They said install the webserver on Godaddy or zebrahost or or similar
    I had my old webserver on a compac server that I have, but that crashed a while ago.
    The database is all setup in v9 and it worked great.
    So now I do have a new harddrive in that compac server and i also have another compac server I could use as a server
    so the question is: should I use my windows 7 personal computer to serv or one of my compac servers or godaddy or leaseweb to serve.
    I would prefer to use godaddy or leaseweb.
    Do you know how to setup a v9 webserver on ie: godaddy or leaseweb?
    My database will primarily be used by just myself and a couple assistants. So low volume use. But I want it accessible by web so when I'm out in the field working, which I work in the field 6-8hrs per day, it is necessary.
    So back to the question: Do you know how to setup a v9 webserver on ie: godaddy or leaseweb?
    and would you be willing to help me set this up? through a remote session?
    And what do you think the cost associated with this installation of webserver would be?

    I could setup the webserver on my desktop win9 or one of my compac servers, temporarily until the leaseweb or godaddy is set up. but that might be a waste of time. your opinion?

    FYI, I was using my v9 web application for several years and it was so helpful to keep track of all my data. It worked great until my server crashed. So I'm just anxious to get the web application back up and running.
    Also, I do have v11 [not installed yet] but I will loose some of my features on v9 so I want to get v9 up then slowly convert to v11 or v12?

    Thanks in advance.
