PostBooks Installers (ver. 2.2.1) For Windows and Mac ===================================== The PostBooks installers for Windows and Mac are designed to make it easy for users to evaluate the PostBooks product-- including both the graphical PostBooks client and the PostBooks database. The database comes pre-loaded with a small set of demo data which you can use for evaluation purposes. The database runs on PostgreSQL, which is also installed locally by the installers. PLEASE NOTE: If you run the installer for Windows or Mac you will not need to do any other additional setup to evaluate the product. However, if you decide to adopt PostBooks in a production environment, we strongly recommend that you re-install PostgreSQL on a dedicated server machine. You may download PostgreSQL directly from, or contact xTuple sales for paid implementation support. Once you have finished the installation, the following steps will get you started: 1. The database starts automatically 2. Simply open the PostBooks client and enter the username and password 3. For Windows, username: mfgadmin | password: mfgadmin55 4. For Mac, username: mfgadmin | password: mfgadmin5 5. You are now connected to the demo database The following are issues you should be aware of: ++ Windows Installer ++ * If you already have PostgreSQL 8.2.x installed on your system, do not use the installer. * The Windows installer creates a Windows system user which should not be removed during the evaluation process. This user may be removed once PostBooks has been uninstalled. Uninstalling PostBooks alone will not remove this user. * PostgreSQL port used: 5430. ++ Mac Installer ++ * While the PostBooks and OpenMFG client and database have been certified for use with Apple Mac OS X Leopard, the current version of the installer (2.2.1) has not. This has to do with Apple removing NetInfo Manager from Leopard and with it the niutil command which we used to manage user accounts. This is a good thing, as the XML driven Directory Service appears much better than Netinfo; however, the command change will hold up the installer release for a little while yet.
