- Make sure to install it under a Windows Administrator.
- Instructions are also in the zip file.
- If adding a computer and you have issues connecting to the SQL Server, please make sure the client machine’s Windows firewall is either OFF or modified to work with the necessary SQL ports.
- You can also make a copy of the server's "EBis 3" folder and copy it directly to the client machine, and create a shortcut to directly start the "EBis3.exe" file.
- If you have EBis 3.2 working on another client machine, you can copy the c:\Program Files\EBis 3.2 Client folder to a folder on the new machine and launch EBis. If your network is configured properly, it will work. Full instructions below:
Go to a computer that has EBIS working on it.Find the EBIS 3 files - probably c:\Program Files (x86)\EBis 3 or c:\Program Files (x86)\EBis 3.2 ClientCopy this whole folder to a USB driveCopy it to a location on your new machineFrom the new machine, go to the folder, and double click on the EBis3.exe file to start the application.If it is successful, please make a shortcut to this EBis3 file on your desktop, and launch it there.
Common Client Connection Issues (Overview)
- c:\program files (x86)\EBis 3 Client folder may need security modifications – give “EVERYONE” full control
- Right-click on the folder, go to Properties > Security tab > click "Edit..." button > "Add.." button> type "Everyone" and press enter, then click on the new "Everyone" user at the top and make sure "Full Control" is selected.
- Determine if Windows User Account Control (UAC) is causing an issue by temporarily disabling it. Go to Windows start menu, type "Settings", and then in "Find a Setting" type "UAC" and change to Never notify and then restart the computer.
- Firewalls – client or server may block SQL TCP/port (most likely either 5050 or 1433)
- Start EBis 3 client with “Run as Admin”
- Antivirus – sometimes apps can block and even crash .NET apps such as EBis – just something to mention.
