Planning your installation

If you only have one computer that will be your till (POS Computer) and back office computer, then you can skip the rest of this section and go down to Installing ROBOTILL on the only or main computer (server).

If you will use multiple computers on your system all of them will need to be connected to the same network (LAN / WIFI).

You will then need to choose one computer that will be your main computer (the server where your database will be). The server computer can be a back office computer or a till computer.

Choose a computer that will always be in the store as the others will not work if the server computer is not there. If you have more than one to choose from then choose the one with the best hardware specifications.

You first need to install ROBOTILL on your main computer (server) before you install the other computers.

Important note when installing on Windows 7

ROBOTILL runs on Windows 7, 8 and 10. On Windows 7 you might need to install the .NET Framework 4.6.1 - the install program will notify you if this is needed. If you get an error that the OS is not supported for the .NET Framework, run your Windows Updates. Once your computer is up to date the framework will install.

Running the install file

Run the setup.exe file in the file that you downloaded. You will notice it is a standard install program and the installation is quick.

Running ROBOTILL for the first time

When you run ROBOTILL for the first time, it will detect that there is no database and the ROBOTILL Database Setup and Connection Wizard will start up. When it opens up select 'Begin Setup >>'.

Installing ROBOTILL Server

Select 'Main Computer Install' and click 'Next'.

POS Install SQL Server

If you have a 64 Bit computer you can select the 64 Bit option. The default option (32 Bit) will work for both 32 Bit and 64 Bit computers. To check what you have, right click on 'This PC' on your desktop and click on Properties.

The wizard will download and install SQL Server (this might take a couple of minutes). If the download fails or if the computer you install on has no internet connection, see 'Install without Internet'.

ROBOTILL install SQL Server

Once the download completed the wizard will start installing SQL Server. The SQL Server install can take a several minutes. Wait for the install to finish. It will either complete or give an error message if there is a problem.
