General sequence of installation

Postby Support » Tue Dec 29, 2015 4:41 am

Operating systems supported by the software: Windows XP Service Pack 3; Windows Server 2003; Windows Vista; Windows Server 2008; Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10.

The software is supplied in two versions: local and network.

Local version is a common application installed on PC. Installation of the software local version is performed by running a file of the received distributive kit and installation of the software to the folder set by user. Installation of any additional software is not required.

The software network version uses three-tier architecture (also Multitier architecture) which assumes availability of the following application components: Client application connected to an application server, which is connected to a database.

The Client is an interface component, which represents the first level, namely the application for end user. The Client has no direct connections with the database (for safety reasons) and is not loaded with core business-logic.

The applications server is located on the second level. The second level comprises much of the business-logic. The database integrated into the server provides storage of data.

Installation of a user on PC or on a server can be performed in three variants: client, server or both parts of the software (full installation).

Installation of the local version

In order to install the software local version on a user PC in is necessary to:

1. Download to user PC a distributive (page http://www.vegacash.com/#download table.
2. Run the downloaded setup file. Agree with license requirements (select the check mark).
3. Set a destination folder for installation (it is advisable to leave by default).
When you first start the software it will prompt for activation key. Key acceptance is described in section Software activation. Once the key is activated the software is ready for operation.

When installing the software local version and starting it first, the software will create new database for each user. In order to ensure interoperation of various users of Windows system using one database it is necessary to allow Windows users the folder sharing where the common database is located and provide them with the common database folder path. The information on the database folder can be obtained in the software using the following menu: Service => Settings => Program settings. New database can be also created there.

Installation of the network version

General sequence of installation requires consequent carrying out of the following procedures:

1. Install the software (server part).
2. Activate the software (detailed information is presented in section Software activation).
3. Install the clients.
Installation of the software network version supposes installation of a server and clients.

Installation of the server part.

1. Download a distributive kit to the user’s PC (page http://www.vegacash.com/#download ).
2. Run the downloaded setup file. Agree with license requirements (select the check mark).
3. Set a destination folder for installation (it is advisable to leave by default).
4. Select “Serer installation” or “Server+client installation” component (Server+client installation supposes installation of both server and clients parts if to use this PC as a software server and one of the clients simultaneously). That is “Server+client installation” supposes operation of this PC both as a server and as one of the clients.

Setting of the software server part.

Setting of the software server part is performed using “Server settings” window (On the server: Start => All Programs => Vega Expert (network version) => Vega – payment budget (network version) => Server settings).

In most cases there is no necessity to change these settings. However, in case when any other software uses the port specified in server settings (by default 28639), you can change the port used by Vega: CashFlow ("Network" tab).

Also you can use the financial structures downloaded from the page http://vegacash.com/structures.php. To perform this it is necessary to set downloaded database path in “Database path” field. Using “Server settings” form (located in Vega: CashFlow program group), you can create new database or save backup copy of the existed database (“Database path” field).

If necessary (use of several network interface cards on one PC) it is possible to set a specific IP of the network interface card used by the server. If in IP field there is 0.0.0.0 then the program uses all network interfaces, which are suitable for most cases.

In order to start server part of Vega: CashFlow software it is necessary to activate the software. Key acceptance is described in section Software activation. Once the key is activated the software is ready for operation.

Installation of clients

1. Run the downloaded setup file (there is one setup file for both client and server). Agree with license requirements (select the check mark).
2. Set a destination folder for installation (it is advisable to leave by default).
3. Select “Client installation” component. Activation is performed on the server; there is no necessity to perform it on clients.
4. Run the installed client.
5. In “Service” – “Settings” – “Program settings” set the server name or IP address.
Attention! Server name or IP address to be set in the client can be obtained in “Network” tab of the server settings.

Running and stopping service Vega: CashFlow can be performed manually using Dashboard => Administration => Services => Vega: CashFlow => Start/stop.
