    Pastel,Win7 and email

    I guess for Neville,

    I have changed two of my workstations to Win 7 and downloaded Windows Live as an email program. I now cannot email invoices to customers.
    Can I get Pastel to use this as the default email and if so....how and if not, how do I fix the problem ?

    Hi Martin,

    Pastel will interface with Outlook Express, Outlook or Windows Live Mail.

    However, if you are running Windows 7 or Vista, you need to be running Pastel Partner/Xpress 2009 Build 10.2.4 or later, in order for get it to interface with one of the above email applications.

    What version of Pastel are you running?

    I'm afraid so, if you want to interface seamlessly with your email system on Windows 7.

    Your alternatives are:
    • Go back to Windows XP
    • Upgrade to the latest version of Pastel
    • Print your invoices as PDF files straight out of Pastel and then attach them to your emails in Windows Live Mail
    Sorry...

    OK, if you first update the invoice, you can reprint it from View...Customers...Print Document...Tax Invoice, and then select the PDF option in the "Print To" field.

    If you have not yet updated the invoice, you can print it as a PDF file after installing one of the many free PDF Writers available on the net, such as CutePDF, PDFill, etc. These utilities show up as a printer driver in Windows, which you can select from within Pastel as the destination printer.

    Works like a bomb and saved me 4000 for the upgrade ! ( But I am sure Pastel will work on something else ! )
    For the non believers out there...........this demonstrates how easy it is to get assistance from Neville .
