POSitive Master Installation file for POSitive For Business (PFB), POSitive For Retail (PFR), Green Enterprise Management (GEM) and POSitive For Restaurant Equipment (PFRE). May be used to update an existing POSitive v.5 or newer installation. However, we recommend that users of older versions have their dealer, or POSitive support, install upgrades due to adjustments that may need to be made to the database and other files.
POSitive products are developed to run on a supported Microsoft Windows operating system along with supported Microsoft SQL Server software. The minimum software and hardware requirements are primarily dictated by the version and edition of Microsoft SQL Server software you choose. Click here for System Requirements.
However, we recommend that you exceed these hardware specifications wherever you can to improve your experience with the performance of POSitive products.
In order to run at peak efficiency both POSitive and Microsoft products require a modern computing system with:
An up-to-date 64-bit Windows operating system (32-bit is no longer supported)
A modern processor (CPU)
Minimum 8+ GB of memory (RAM)
A modern high-speed wired network Ethernet adapter is required if you intend to run the software on more than one computer
High-speed internet access is also recommended in order to obtain superior technical support for your POSitive products
This initial release does not include the MS SQL database, so if used for a new installation you must be familiar with installing MS SQL separately. We recommend using Microsoft SQL Server 2016 or newer.
A current maintenance key is required in order to run the installation file. The key also determines which product is activated, the number of user licenses and optional modules. If you do not have a current maintenance key you will need to purchase or renew a software maintenance subscription (SMS) in order to get one. Please contact your dealer or POSitive support to purchase.
Before installing any update file make sure you have backup of both the POSitive directory and the SQL database.
IMPORTANT! If you are updating a POSitive product, the master installation file will create a 'generic' installation directory unless you enter the specific directory name for your current POSitive product. We recommend that you review the Registration Instructions by clicking on the link above. If you are not sure what that directory is, or how to find it, STOP NOW and consult your dealer or POSitive support before proceeding!
Also special considerations must be taken to update Multi-Site installations and local workstation installations. Please contact us for more information.
