    How To Manually Set-up a Client PC to Access CAPITAL

    by COBS Tech Support » Thu Dec 03, 2015 3:10 pm

    In situations where you have problems running ..\CAPITAL\Setupclient.exe to install a desktop short-cut to start CAPITAL Business Manager, follow these steps:

    1. Manually create a short-cut to your application on your server drive or URL. For example: F:\CAPITAL\BMS.EXE

    2. Ensure that the "Target" and "Start In" paths are the same. For example, if the "Target" is specified as F:\CAPITAL\BMS.EXE, ensure that the "Start In" or equivalent path on your short-cut reads: F:\CAPITAL

    3. Create a folder on the local PC at a neutral location (a location not managed by Windows, such as a profile folder or system folder). For example: C:\CAPDATA

    4. Using Notepad save the file CAPWIN.INI inside C:\CAPDATA

    Code: Select all

    [Environment]
    CapProg=<path>
    CapData=<path>
    CapHelp=<path>


    For example:

    Code: Select all

    [Environment]
    CapProg=F:\CAPITAL
    CapData=F:\CAPITAL
    CapHelp=F:\CAPITAL


    Note: After saving the above file ensure that the file extension is CAPWIN.INI and not CAPWIN.INI.TXT. If it is wrong, rename the file.

    5. Finally, edit your short-cut and change: ..\CAPITAL\BMS.EXE to read: ..\CAPITAL\BMS.EXE /CONFIG=C:\CAPDATA\CAPWIN.INI

    The application will now launch.

    NOTE: The 'neutral location' should be unique for each user. Do not point multiple users to the same file at the same location.
