Re: What did you get (or give)?

A Raspberry Pi computer, which I have earmarked for a couple of tasks.
1. Act as a filter for some some of the more annoying and non-relevant ads.
2. Amalgamate shop and home networks into a super-network. I've never really been satisfied with previous attempts at this.

Sorry, you did ask!

Re: Suggestion

Many thanks for your useful feedback, Jo. The Latest version of EstLite (9.02) has now replaced the Uncollected Jobs radio button on the History screen, with the more useful Jobs Ready For Collection which lists only jobs that have been marked as complete. Also, you can print the list (on either pap...

Re: Suggestion

Great suggestion, Jo. Got me thinking that perhaps the Uncollected filter should display only jobs that are complete and uncollected. Is there really any need for a list that includes jobs that are uncollected because they are not yet ready for collection? Should we replace the Uncollected list, wit...

Re: Bbest not connecting to net for suppliers list

Are you are using the current BBEst version?

If so, then the most likely culprit will be an anti-virus application that is blocking BBEst's internet access.

Re: Rounding Prices

Hi Jo EstLite automatically rounds up to an even 10p I've never felt the need to have the program round to whole pounds. At Scenes we always charge only the whole pound part of the total price and ignore the pence, I think that, small as discount may be,it kind of puts us in a positive light in the ...

Re: Smart cmc not being recognised by smart software on laptop

I've had mixed results with usb/serial adaptors. Some hardware can be a bit picky with port number, baud rate, and handshake protocols, but the port can be configured to work eventually. However, I have had hardware (till toll printer) that refuses to work with a usb/serial adaptor, while working pe...

Re: Updating Estlite

Could it be that an over-aggressive anti-virus application is preventing EstLite from installing? Not sure if it would make any difference but you could try running the installer (EstSetup.exe) as administrator. You can download estsetup.exe from https://estlite.com/download.php Never heard of ESTsoft

Re: Updating Estlite

Are you opening EstLite from a shortcut on the desktop?
If so right-click on the EstLite icon and select Properties from the pop-up list
In the Properties window What are the contents of the Target: and Start in: boxes?

Also, is there more than one EstLite icon on the desktop?

Re: Updating Estlite

Hi Justin, This entry in the help file was added years ago when a user, with Windows95 I think, was having a problem with the Update feature and it turned out that the missing dll file was the cause. This is unlikely to be an issue on a modern (ish) PC, however if you are unable to update, and you h...
