Are you using the most current release of QuoteWerks?
Version 5.5 Build 1
Question:

We have two company divisions we run from our location and I would like to run them on separate quotewerks databases. Is it possible to do this on a single computer (even if not simultaneously).

Solution:

you can run 2 or more installations of QuoteWerks on the same computer, such as, in the case of a Terminal Server in which you need to run to separate offices.

To do this, you will need to:

- Create a Remote Site license key. To see a tutorial video on how to create a Remote Site License, click on the following link:
https://www.quotewerks.com/videos/tutorials/Vid2_RemoteSiteLicense.wmv

- Make a Copy of your QuoteWerks Directory and rename the copy to something like "QuoteWerks Division B"

- Now open the QuoteWerks Division B folder and locate the Qw4.exe file, right-click and send it to the desktop as a shortcut

- Rename the shortcut to something such as "QuoteWerks Division B"

- After renaming the shortcut to the second installation, launch QuoteWerks Division B and remove ALL License keys from the License Manager

- Enter the Remote Site license key you created on the Master installation

- Select the UtilitiesRebuild CM Transport Files menu. (Leave the checkboxes unchecked)

- Register the Remote Site License
