Installing on a Network


Podware will work well on any Local Area Network, including wireless connections, on up to 25 computers.

1. Make sure that all computers are connected to the network and switched on

2. Install 'Podware' first on the Server by saving your original downloaded installation file and opening it. Podware will be installed in a folder named 'Podware'. The pathway is C:\Podware

3. Ensure that the Podware folder on the server is shared. You may need help from your network administrator for that. 

The Podware folder is in the C drive.

4. Install Podware on your client machines (one at a time) then when Podware opens connect the data tables:

Open Podware

When the login box appears select Table Links

A browser will appear as below

Browse your network to locate and select the file 'Tables5' within the shared Podware folder on your main computer/ server

Click save and when the dialogue below appears click yes

Enter your password then click OK (email us for the data file password).

Podware  will link the tables and then open the Login form.

When that has been done on all of the client computers you are ready to run Podware on your network. Podware can be opened on your client machines using the desktop shortcut.

If you don't know your password for the Tables5 file please contact us


Please do not try to run Podware using any method other than above as it may cause data corruption.
