I have a customer who owns a store in Idaho and they use a product called "Ice Retail" that has a db called SQLBase.  It crashed on them saturday and I am trying to get it working for them.

I have the app re-installed (works ok as default) and I have a database from another store (works ok at the other store) that has most of the scanned codes then need for their POS.

Is anyone familiar with this app?  I need to get the POS codes from the other store to show up in the install for the store with the crashed app.

Kinda stuck here.

Any suggestions?

"Retail ICE is a true 32-bit Windows application. In addition, it uses a powerful SQL (Structured Query Language) database. The database is a true "client/server" design and is 100% open. It has been designed with a high degree of discipline which allows the end user to effectively access the data in the database through third-party programs using ODBC tools and standards."

and this means that you should be able to install (if you don't have already) SQL Express tools like SSMS -  management studio, then backup the good database and restore it over the bad corrupted one. Also I think you should be able to connect to the one that "crashed" to see what's happening on that server.

lcohan - Thanks for the tip.  I thought SSMS was a M$ SQL tool only and never even considered it could connect to other SQL sources... like crystal or access or something.  Anyway, that didn't really pan out.

I ended up trying it on an XP machine and voila'!  Everything worked peachy from the start.

So . . . what's different on windows 7 for this vs. XP?  I tried run as admin with no luck.  I am going to close this question and reopen a new one with win7 v. xp as the gyst.

Thanks.
