Nice to see this project being actively maintained again. Excellent for a single-station POS, documentation still needs work for explaining how to connect several POS stations to a central database, and how to set up an inventory-control terminal.

Installer does not run on latest version of OS X (10.3.8) Fails to detect Java Runtime Environment. Verified that current, working JRE is v 1.7, but installer does not detect properly. Cannot install software on latest OS X.

    really good for open source software :), though it still has some little bug or less feature, overall, it is great!

    Brilliant project, been playing around for 4 months and now installed it live at 2 sites, still learning how do do things, I am not a programmer, just someone that knows very little how Java and codes work, and with the help of the forum I managed to get most of my questions answered.

    This looks like a good product, but I can't get past first base. I'm trying to install Version 3.56 under Windows 7, but the startup file (start.bat) can't find "javaw". I've stripped Java from the machine and run various cleaners and uninstall programs to ensure nothing has been left behind. I've then restarted the machine and reinstalled Java (Version 7u51). I've checked that it is installed correctly, then tried to run the POS application, but still it can't find "javaw" on the machine. When I search for this routine, I can find "javaws", but not "javaw". Is there a typo in the .bat file? Anyway, I can't use software that is going to produce these kinds of errors in a critical commercial environment. On the outside, it looks like it meets my needs exactly, but I'm not going to recommend it to a client until I can test it and make sure it is rock solid. Sorry -- 1 star, and that's overkill at this point. ***** ***** jgerrard ... thanks for your response. I've downloaded your binary, I've run the Java uninstaller and been told that "there are no old versions of Java" on my machine. The uninstalled also reported that I have the latest version (V7u51) correctly installed. I can find the java install in: c:/Program Files (x86)/Java/jre7/bin I can see java.exe, javaw.exe and javaws.exe in this directory but when I specify this directory as the appropriate java installaion to use, your program opens a command window then immediately tells me it can't find javaw. ***** ***** I don't mean to be critical, but I have a software background and I'm having a devil of a time trying to get this program running. I can't imagine how the average small business operator would deal with these issues. I want a TOOL I can use to run a business. I don't want to be fiddling with the tool and dealing with software issues. I still don't know why your program won't load--and I have no way to debug it--without getting into the source code. You say I have problems with Java. Oracle says Java V7u51 is installed correctly ... how much more time do I spend on this? ****************************************************** FOLLOW UP: ****************************************************** After spending some time debugging the initial install, I discovered that the folder described above was NOT in my ENVIRONMENT %PATH% file. While you may argue this is a flaw in the Java install (which I believe is true), I also believe this is something you should be checking (ASSERT) before trying to access "javaw.exe". The average store owner is not going to know how to debug this kind of error. All he/she gets is "Windows cannot find javaw.exe". (When I specified where to find java, your installer obviously didn't add the appropriate folder to %PATH% in my environment files.) The Product looks good so far, but I've yet to exercise it fully. I've upgraded my rating now that I can run the program. ********************************************************
