ShopClock Installation

To install ShopClock on this computer, download the ShopClock setup program, sc4Setup.exe, and save it to your desktop. It is always a good idea to disable your anti virus software while installing new software. Then double click on it and follow the on screen prompts. The setup program installs ShopClock4, Microsoft SQL Server Compact, and a copy of the local database with some demo data (it will not overwrite any existing database).

Configure the Firewall 

Before starting ShopClock for the first time, configure the firewall to allow ShopClock4 to pass. 

Connect to the server 

 When ShopClock is started for the first time, it checks the state of its local database. If the local database has never been opened, it looks for a Network Database. If it finds a network database, it logs onto the network database, displays all the active employees, and is ready for use. If it does not discover a network database, ShopClock decides to use the local database and starts an Evaluation Period. If the local database has previously been opened, then ShopClock logs in and displays its active employees.


The ShopClock setup program has been digitally signed and is authenticated by Verisign. This ensures that the software you download did indeed come from us and that it has not been altered since we signed it. Think of the digital signature as 'shrink wrap for the Internet.' Information about our signature will be displayed when you run sc4Setup.exe to install ShopClock. By installing the ShopClock software, you agree to be bound by the terms of its Software License.
