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.
