Peachtree 2005/Fixed Assets move to server


J

Joe Gazda

I have a client that installed Peachtree Complete Accounting 2005 on one
workstation with the Fixed Asset (FAS) program. After using the program for
a few weeks, they want to move the company files to their Windows XP Pro
(acting as a server) and use an additional licensed workstation to access
the data.

Well, I didn't have any trouble moving the company data files to the
"server", but when looking for the Fixed Assets, I get an error message. The
Peachtree expects it to be on the original workstation.

Does any one know if there is a "*.ini" file that can be changed to point to
the "server" for the location of both the company files and fixed asset
data?

Thanks!

I found a Peachtree Knowledgebase article (263) that might be the answer to
my question. I might be able to change the DATAPATH in both the PCW120.INI
and BTI.INI (for FAS) files to point to a map drive on the "server". I'll
try it this weekend and see if I'm successful.

Any input is still welcomed and appreciated.

I found that the FAS that comes with Peachtree Complete Accounting is a
single user license and can't be installed on a server. Nowhere on the
Peachtree web site do they share this information. I had to search the
Internet to find a web site that actually listed the various versions of FAS
and displayed the features.

There isn't any command line in the BTI.INI file to cahnge the location of
the FAS software and you get an error message if you try to install it on a
mapped drive.

I've worked with FAS before. U can't install it, the program itself, on a
server, but you can keep the data files on a server. - Steve
