ACCPAC LAN Pack - need help

ACCPAC LAN Pack - need help

ACCPAC LAN Pack - need help

Sorry if this is redundant. The search is not working right at the moment.
I am preforming maintenance and prep work at a small company that purchased ACCPAC Advantage Series 5.1a with System manager, GL, A/R with the LAN pack. They are only using it with a single user and the LAN pack should not be necessary.
I am an ACCPAC illiterate and I would like to know if installing it solely on the client should be an issue or do we have to put it on the server with the LAN pack? It will save them having to upgrade their server, which they would not need to do if we can put this on a single workstation.

RE: ACCPAC LAN Pack - need help

Go ahead and install it all on a local machine. There should be no problems and the server does not have to be involved at all.

Thanks and Good Luck!


RE: ACCPAC LAN Pack - need help

From 5.1 onwards you have to install a LANpak, even if it is only one user.

The System Manager does not determine the database (P.SQL, etc) anymore - the LANpak does.
