Updater doesn't recognize the quickstart xtsetup file

Hi all,

I recently purchased the quickstart package xtsetup-3.8.0.gz, but when I try to open it in the updater app 2.2.5, it says it is not a valid TAR file. I've tried re-downloading but still no go. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

I am setting up xTuple Postbooks edition for a company. How reliable is the postbooks free edition. Is there any limitation in running for a long period?

Prevent employee records from showing in CRM for all users

How do I setup permissions such that my CSRs and QA employees can see and modify customer records, but not employee accounts, in the CRM?  Right now, I either get an all or nothing choice, and it mixes the employee records in with the customer records.

Vendor "Numbers"

I did the initial Vendor CSV Imports using actual numbers in the 'Vendor Number' field. Now that I am in xTuple and entering data, I find our Vendor list far too long to try and remember Vendor Numbers which is how the search field seems to work. 

Is there anything wrong with redoing the CSV import (with the DELETE command in the pre-SQL) but using the actual Vendor Name in the column for Vendor Number?  Will this screw up something I have yet to encounter within xTuple?

Help with my installation

I installed with following steps:

1) install latest postgresql on my windows 7

2) create admin in xtrole group

3) restore emty database 4.8

4) install 4.8 windows client


Then I run 4.8 client:

after login, it said my license has expired for 3 days. I should use a free version, right?

Then I click continue anyway, it asked my to select currency, then I don't know what I should do next. If I click close for this currency selection window, the main window also closed.  Then the program is closed.

Can't connect to specified xTuple ERP server


I have just installed the xTuple server on the localhost, as shown on the videos in Github wiki. However, when I try to log in using the desktop client I get a message saying that I can not connect to the specified xTuple ERP server. It reads as below;

I have tried to modify the Vagrant file in such a way that the 5433 port is forwarded together with the 8888, 8443 and 3000 ports already put in place.

Can you please help?

Many thanks,

Help with installing / setup


I've acquired a HP Microserver N54L, with a 250GB drive + 2 x 1TB drives.
I've installed Ubuntu Server on the 250GB drive and intend to use one of the other drives to host the database (the third drive is intended for file storage (PDF/Excel/etc), also for remote access).
I want to be able to use PostBooks (free edition) from my laptop on the go, while visiting customers, while the database will be on the N54L server at home. Read more »

Quickstart-wizard and Translations for 4.8.1

I am currently trying to Pilot a postbooks installation 4.8.1 (ubuntu server14.04) Clients are windows 7 with 4.8.0 clients

For both the quickstart wizard and tranlation downloads the most recent choice is 4.6.0.

Will this run on 4.8.0 clients?

If not when can I expect the updates?

Should I just load 4.6.0 so I can proceed with these tools.
