Installing ROBOTILL On Additional Computers

An additional computer is a computer that is not the Server. It can be a POS Point (TILL) or a back office computer (ROBOTILL Manager). The server already needs to be installed before you can install additional computers. Click here to install the server.

Local Network

Before you do the install, you need to make sure that both computers (the one you want to install on and the server) is on a local network. You can connect the computers with a network cable or setup a wireless network. A simple home network setup will work. To do a simple test to see if your network setup is correct: click here.

If you need help setting up the network, you can just google 'setting up a home group' or you can contact a local IT support company (most computer shops offer support as well) to help you. ROBOTILL support can help with the ROBOTILL install but will not help with setting up your network.

Installing ROBOTILL

Run the ROBOTILL Setup program. After the install completed, open ROBOTILL Manager or one of the ROBOTILL POS modules. The ROBOTILL Database Setup and Connection wizard will open. Click on 'Begin Setup'.

Select 'Additional Installation'. In the Server Name, type the computer name of the ROBOTILL Server that you installed. Note that it needs to be the computer name as displayed on the network and not the computer description. Click on 'Next'. The Wizard wil not install SQL Server but will instead connect this computer to the server that is already installed.

If you get an error message after you followed these instructions carefully, click here.
