QuickBooks Point of Sale v12.0 Multi-store, one setting you cannot fix at this time.

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

It was brought to my attention today ( and I have verified it)  that there is a small issue in QB POS v 12 Multi-store.

In the Company Preferences at Headquarters, you can turn off the setting to allow the selling of miscellaneous items on a sales receipt.

What was discovered is that this setting will remain active at the remote stores and cannot be edited.

remote_sell

Even if you log into the remote store as Sysadmin, or do multiple exchanges, the setting remains checked.

We have notified Intuit about this issue, and we have confidence it will be addressed. And before you ask, No, I don’t know how soon.

 

QuickBooks Point of Sale 10 in Windows 10.

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

Since Windows 10 was released, we have heard of users that were unable to install QB POS v 10, or run it under the Windows 10 operating system.

While not officially supported, you can have QB POS 10 run, there are a couple of things that need to be done first.

 

When you try to install the software, you will get a message that the Intuitupdate cannot run.

 

QB POS v 10 requires a couple of things to run, and Windows 10 has shut these off.

First, you will need to install the .NET framework 3.5

On the keyboard, do the Windows Key and the letter X to open the menu, then choose Control Panel.

It may open in Category View, so I usually switch to Small Icons.

Choose Programs and Features.

On the left, choose Turn Windows Features On or Off.

This will bring another window.

.Net Framework 3.45 will be listed there. Click the small Plus sign next to it and place checks in both of the listed folders.

win10

Continue down the list and place a check in Simple TCPIP services.

Choose Ok, then restart the computer once it has completed.

You should now be able to install, or run the Qb POS v 10.

 

Thinking of going to Windows 10? You might want to hold off a bit..

It happens with everything new. A new software comes out and the kinks have to be worked out.

There are now reports that some people upgrading to Windows 10 have been caught in an upgrade loop, making the computer unusable.

 

Over the weekend, Microsoft released a  Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081424). On some computers this is causing the system to lock into a continuous loop, and the computer is unusable.

Today, Sony release a warning not to update to Windows 10 on any Viao systems.

Windows 10 looks like a nice operating system. But I would recommend you hold off doing the upgrade until they have the major kinks fixed.

 

What is all this EMV stuff really about?

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

First , lets understand what EMV really stands for.

It is the first letters of the three credit card companies that started the “Chip” technology that will be on credit cards later this year.

Europay, Mastercard and Visa.

So why do we need to go to this?

Credit card fraud is an awful thing.

What happens with a chip embedded credit or debit card is, it is inserted into a reader, and the chip creates a unique transaction number for that particular sale. Then it waits for you to enter your Pin number.

Because the transaction number is unique, and you are entering your pin, it is more secure than a magnetic reader reading off the credit card numbers from a stripe.

Now, let’s look at some things that really effect businesses.

The “Chip and Pin” technology does NOT prevent credit card fraud when your card number and expiration are given over the phone, or through a system that does not have the chip reading technology. These are called “Card Not Present” transactions.

One of the things that will effect a business, is if the credit card processing system does not have the Chip and Pin capability.

If you own a business, do not have the EMV compliant equipment, and credit card fraud happens, the store owner is responsible for the charges.

If you DO have the equipment, but the bank that issues the card did not include the chip and pin capability, the bank is responsible for the charges.

As was seen in Europe, which adopted the Chip and Pin several years ago, there will probably be a decrease in the credit card fraud at the cash register, and an increase in the Card Not Present type of fraud. We will have to see how the credit card companies deal with that.

The Chip and Pin technology is not a perfect solution. But it is better than what we currently use.

 

Windows 10 is here. But read this before you install…

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

Windows 10 is here. But there is something you need to know before installing it.

 

Windows 10 feeds a tremendous amount of your personal data back to Microsoft if you choose Express Install.

Choose Custom Install instead of Express.

Turn off anywhere they ask about personalization and location.

In the Browser and Protection settings, look for anything that wants to share data with Microsoft.

And Turn off Error Reporting. It sounds ok, but it gives them permission to track a lot more about you.

Once installed, go to Settings, from the Start Menu, Privacy, and Feedback and Diagnostics and set it to Basic.

 

More and more companies are digging through your data to find out more about you. They bury the details in  their fine print. Don’t let them know more than they should.

 

QuickBooks Point of Sale v12. When the receipt printer opens the drawer repeatedly, but won’t print.

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

Sometimes you can’t win. Everything is hooked up and working, then it’s not.

I cannot tell you how many times I have seen a situation where the printers USB cable gets unplugged and moved to a different slot. Or you have just installed the software and when you try to print, the printer sits ther, the Cash Drawer opens, and you get this continous Chunk-a-Chunk-a-chunk sound going on.

So, before you drag it out back and set it on fire, or start making appointments with your therapist, let’s take a look at what’s going on.

Moving the USB cable to a new slot confuses Windows. And it will confuse QB POS because it is looking at a particular slot to send the print job, and now the printer is gone.

You may open the Devices and Printers and see Star 143 in there, along with copy 1, 2, 3 etc, depending on how many slots the printer has been tried in.

Removing the devices just doesn’t seem to clear up the mess.

An in the case where the Cash Drawer goes crazy, it can be really frustrating. What is happening there is the driver is not installed correctly.

Great, so how do we deal with the mess?
