Installing JobMatix

JobMatix3 Install Package

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

The program is available as a self-extracting (SFX) install package and can be downloaded from the Latest Version page on this site. The package will install the JobMatix executables, as well as four support dll’s. See the download instructions for more info.

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

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 Job Tracking 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.

Access to MYOB Retail Manager

Each JobMatix client user must have network access rights to view/read the relevant MYOB RetailManager database (“recent.mdb” MS-Access data file). A separate MYOB licence is not required for JobTracking to access the RetailManager database, since JobMatix can read it directly using the Microsoft ADO (ActiveX Data Access) client layer and the Microsoft Jet 4.0 driver.

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

A business logo can be provided by the user if 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 JobTracking install directory (ie “c:\JobMatix32\” or “c:\Program Files\JobMatix3\”).
