Installing JobMatix

Note-1: JobMatix needs Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 to be installed on all systems where JobMatix is to run.

Note-2: JobMatix also needs Microsoft SQL Server as the host database management system.  Ms Sql Server 2008R2 (or later) should be installed somewhere on the local network before installing JobMatix.  An install package can be downloaded from Microsoft.. eg.  from here:

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with SP2
https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=30438

They will give you a list of files..  This is an example of one to download-
SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe
And for the SQL Server Management Studio..

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express

https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=7593Get the file:  SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe
JobMatix3 Install Package.

The JobMatix application must be installed on all network clients that need access to JobMatix functions.

The program is available as a self-extracting install package and can be  downloaded from the Downloads page on this site. The package will install the JobMatix executables, as well  as some support dll’s.

To install JobMatix, download the .EXE package onto a local drive.  Double-click on it to start the installation, and follow the install instructions.

JobMatix will be installed in [Program Files] (32-bit system) or in [Program Files (x86)] on a 64-bit system.

The JobMatix application must be installed on each client computer that will need access to the JobTracking functions.  It  must also be installed on the machine that will be running  the MSSQL-Server service, since the DB-Create and Restore functions are best executed  locally on the SQL-Server machine.

MYOB Retail Manager:

Each  JobMatix client user must have network access rights to read the user’s current MYOB Retail Manager database (“recent.mdb” MS-Access data file).  A separate MYOB licence is not required for JobMatix to access the Retail Manager database;  JobMatix can read the RM data tables directly using the Microsoft ADO.net data access layer, and the Microsoft Jet 4.0 driver.

Note that JobMatix  does not write to the Retail Manager database or modify it any way.  The Retail Manager database provides the basic business tables (Categories,  Customer, Sales Orders, Staff, Stock, SerialAudit, Suppliers etc) which  are referenced by the JobTracking functions.

Note:  A business logo can be provided by the user if one is available.  If provided, it will be printed on the Service Agreement  and Delivery forms, and on the customer tear-off receipts in place of the  JobMatix logo.  The logo image file  is to be installed by the user if needed,  and should be around 120×90 pixels.

The file must be  named like “userlogo_*.gif”  (or .bmp, or .jpg) eg:
userlogo_MainStPCs.gif, and must be placed in the JobMatix install directory  (ie “c:\JobMatix34\”  or “c:\Program Files\JobMatix34\”).
