T8 MTS / Re: T8 MTS Network Install
« Last post by BIG 3 Creative on January 12, 2021, 02:54:48 AM »
Works great! thank you!

Just curious if I did not want to share the full C:/ drive  on the server could I just share the C:/T8MTS folder and change the mapped path to Z:/t8mts.adb (excluding the T8MTS folder that Z is mapped to?) 
In other words... does the local instance need to access anything outside the networked T8MTS folder on the server C:/ Drive?

Thanks,
Mike

Here is the simplest way.

First decide which machine is going to be the "server" or "master" and make its hard drive map-able as a network drive.

Then on the other computer (workstation) map that network drive and give it a drive letter such as "Z:" for example.

Next do a full install of T8 MTS on the workstation.

Then edit the desktop shortcut and make these changes.

For "Target" change C:\SCS\system\alpha5.exe "C:\T8MTS\t8mts.adb" -INCLUDE="C:\T8MTS\SC8.startup" to C:\SCS\system\alpha5.exe "Z:\T8MTS\t8mts.adb" -INCLUDE="C:\T8MTS\SC8.startup"

Change "Start In" from C:\T8MTS to Z:\T8MTS

After that you should be good to go. The server computer must be running at all times when the workstation will be accessing the data. Any updates to T8 MTS or the Catalog Builder should only be done on the master computer.

The catalog builder should only be run on the master computer.

Is there a way to install T8 MTS on another workstation on the same LAN that would share the same database?

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks Preston!  I downloaded the installer again, don't know what the difference it, it was a different size than the one I downloaded yesterday, but it worked.  I am in and setting up the software now!

Brad, Delete the C:\SCS folder in its entirety. Delete C:\T8MTS folder in its entirety.

Download the T8-MTS full installer again, unzip it and run it. After the install is complete, right click on the desktop shortcut and select "run as Administrator".

If you still have problem the PM me your phone number and a time range to call you. we can then setup a remote connect so I can see if I can find and fix the problem.

Will check into it and see if I can get this fixed quickly. Sometimes I do not get the same problems.

Just so you know the upgrade to T8 fixes the problems I found in T7

T8 MTS / T8 Full install not working
« Last post by Brad_G on January 02, 2021, 12:05:19 AM »
I was hoping to spend some time over this weekend installing the new version and get everything set up and ready to go for the new year, but no luck.  I have attached a screenshot of what I get when software launches.  This is on a clean install of Windows 10 with antivirus disabled.  I've ran the installer normal, ran it as Administrator, and of course the first launch is run as Administrator as well.  No luck!  T7 never fully worked for me without errors, hence the reason for a clean install of Windows, now this!!!
