I originally had peachtree installed as a single user.
I uninstalled peachtree via Add and Remove programs.
I reinstalled peachtree as a multi user.
I installed peachtree on my other computer.
mapped a drive to sage/peachtree/company on the main computer.
When I try to start peachtree on the other workstation, I get the Message,
"Peachtree cannot connect to your Peachtree company data location"
both computers are running windows 7
Main computer is a 32 machine
workstation is a 64 bit machine
When I click on the network icon,
the mapped drive "z" is available,
when I click on mapped drive, I can access the company folder and everything in it.
can anyone help with this?
I am guessing it is a permissions issue.
Did you share your Peachtree data folder? Sharing and Security - EVERYONE should have full permission. Also System should be Full permission.
Are you using a server? how are those computer connected one from another?
I am having the same issues of not being able to connect my clients to the server. The history of this is that for some reason while working from a remote location the server shut down, a power drop probably was rather windy that day.
I restarted the server and finished my work that day, but the next day when attempting to start peachtree on the clients it was unable to do so. I have been thru all the permissions on the clients, which did not shut down as they are laptops with battery.
I can access the company file thru the network. The drive is mapped as before. I am at my wits end to understand how a power drop can crearte such havoc. I did have an issue with setting up the network with peachtree when I moved from xp to vista on the server but peachtree support had worked me thru that and all was working fine for several months .
peachtree complete 2011
vista basic 32 bit
hardwired to a belkin wireless access point to connect to the laptops
if there is anything else i will be glad to provide that info
need help please
Your pervasive engine is broken. There are many steps to remove it and replace it. . You have to pick the files out of the program files and registry. I will not post the steps on this board. This type of maintenance should not be performed without the supervision of Sage or a Certified Consultant.
