Installation

BusinessSuite supports two SQL servers: Firebird SQL and Microsoft SQL. The choice of database platform is a major factor in performance, growth and implementation costs. For more information about the two database types, see the Requirements page.

There is a single installation file that will install BusinessSuite for either platform. If you select Firebird SQL as your database then the Firebird client and/or server will be installed automatically during the installation process. If you select Microsoft SQL as your database then you will need to ensure the SQL Server is installed and working prior to the installation as only the client will be installed.

To download the installation file, click on the link below:
