    Pastel Xpress Connectivity Problem

    Hi all

    I was hoping someone here could maybe help me, I'm trying to help a friend with a small business.
    He has 3 computers running Pastel Xpress, all are set up the same, but when he opens 2 POS, the third one can't connect to the company.

    Not the network as I have tested this (logged into the company from the computer previously locked out, then still couldn't connect on the third one)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    If more info is needed I can go there tomorrow morning and get it

    Oh and he uses Windows XP and the main PC in the office acts as the "Server"

    Pastel Xpress can only be installed on a maximum of three computers on a network, so when you open POS, it will try to utilise a fourth instance of Pervasive, so it closes one of the three Xpress systems.

    Thank you very much for the quick reply

    That just flew straight over my head though

    Is there any way to get it to run on all 3 computers at the same time, or should he upgrade?
