Well, this is a stab in the dark, but I have a client out there that is running an old, unsupported version of a medical billing software. They've purchased a new pc and wanted a medisoft workstation installation on the new pc. I can't figure out how to do it. The closest I've gotten was a standalone installation of Medisoft. I'm posting just in case there is someone out there that has experience with Medisoft 12

My experience with these types of client/server apps is that, on the server, there is typically a workstaion installation folder that allows you to install a workstation to that database. Usually it just kind of happens. Not so with this application.

Anyone out there was some inside info?

thanks

It has been years since I worked with Medisoft, but one of my clients used it.  If I remember correctly, there are two different ways to install it.  The server should have a "client install" feature, though I cannot remember how to get to it.  Second, the CD install should have a portion which asks you for the db location (custom install).  You should put in your central store at that time.

I think you are on it with "custom" install. I just ran setup with all defaults, I believe. The cd had a way to put the installation on the server, but it seemed to have been just a copy of the installation files. After seeing your post I've contacted the client to make arrangement for another try. I'll post asap.

Thanks for your comment.

As for the central store, do you remember how to find out where it is? Seems like you right clicked at the bottom of Medisoft on a pc that is running the app.

I have not touched the app in 8 years.  I really don't remember, and even if I did, there is very little chance it has not changed in that time frame.

Well, the solution was to search the registry for medisoft entries. In there I found a Default Root Data Path. Once I changed it to the unc of my data location it workded. There was no place in the custom install to designate the data path, so I'm not sure where the entry that was there came from, perhaps from a previous install. Maybe on a fresh install you have the opportunity to designate a data path.
Thanks for your help Drultima. I'm awarding the points to you.

Glad you got it working.  Unfortunately, I don't have access to that software any more, so I couldn't track that location down for you.
