Gradience Pro / Enterprise - Install Options

There are three ways to install this software...

  • Server installation,
  • Client Installation, 
  • Standalone Installation

When you select [Server] during the installation process...

  • A database will be created [on that machine] ..
  • An instance of Firebird will be installed [on that machine] ..
  • You will get a prompt that will ask you to print-out or jot-down the location of the data so that you can point clients when installing on clients ..
  • The Hrware.ini file will [point] the software [locally]

When you select [Client] during the installation process...

  • You will [point] the software to the database located [on the server]. .. 
  • An instance of Firebird will [not] be installed [on that machine] ..
  • The Hrware.ini file will [point] the software [on the server]

When you select [Standalone] during the installation process...

  • A database will be created [on that machine]..
  • An instance of Firebird will be installed [on that machine] ..
  • The Hrware.ini file will [point] the software [locally]

Verify whether the software has already been installed as Client or Server/Standalone:

On any machine where you are running Gradience go to C:\ProgramData\Gradience and open the Hrware.ini file. Look at the line [very near the top] that starts with...

SERVER=

Whatever follows the equal sign is the designated machine that is hosting the data.

  • If you see the word Localhost it means that the machine you are [at] is the server/standalone. 
  • If it has a name of a machine, whatever machine is named is the server.
  • Although it is rare, you may see an IP address, in which case whatever machine that IP address belongs to [is the server] whether local or otherwise.
