Questions On EPIM Pro Business

Post by dkwalton »

Windows 8.1 Pro
EssentialPIM Pro Business 9.8 Installed
Firebird not yet installed anywhere

ISSUE 1: Using EssentialPIM Pro Business 9.8 without a Firebird Server --

I plan to use EPIM Pro Business 9.8 without any LAN based server for awhile until I get a dedicated server set up. After looking through the documentation I have some unanswered questions.

I use hard drive imaging as a method to backup my OS and software on the Windows C: drive and frequently restore a previous C: drive image after testing software or if something goes wrong. Given this situation --

1) Where are all EPIM settings/options stored?
2) If the EPIM settings/options are not in a database is it possible to relocate where they are stored?
3) Would installing EPIM Pro Business 9.8 to a secondary internal hard drive other than C: cause any problems?

ISSUE 2: Networking Android Devices with the EssentialPIM Pro App

Android devices can be made to communicate to a drive on a wireless LAN using a special app. In this scenario can the EssentialPIM Pro App be set up to use the LAN server containing the Firebird database?

1. As in the EPIM's database file as in the EPIM.INI file.
2. In the app folder for the portable version and here for the regular one: C:\Users\You_Windows_Username\AppData\Roaming\EssentialPIM Pro. You cannot change the path.
3. Nope.

Yes, if there's an EPIM copy running on the server.
Android version of EssentialPIM. Keep all your data in sync!
