Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10 or Novell , for Network Version.
Will also run on a Windows Peer to Peer Network.

Our programs do not run directly on the internet.  For a simple solution:  Try the Logmein at: www.logmein.com .  More advanced option would include:  If you have a VPN and a highspeed internet connection, then it may be possible to map a drive to your server for an internet connection.  A very fast connection would be required on both ends and a network specialist would need to assist you.  If you wish to remotely enter data, we recommend using a remote control program such as pcAnywhere or GoToMyPC.  For advanced users, there is also free remote control software such as VNC.  Both pcAnywhere and VNC require you to configure your router to use "port forwarding".  MapleSoft can provide some assistance or recommendations.

For networking it is our recommendations for multiple users, for each person to be doing different things, such as one person entering child attendance and another person entering child accounts.  There is no problem for multiple persons accessing the same records at the same time, but some reports can only be ran by one person at a time.   Also for large amounts of data, we recommend 100mps network.  10mps is fine for most small to medium size companies.

If you have a virtual printer driver installed such as a fax driver or email printer driver "for capturing reports" - "such as eFax", you may need to uninistall these types of drivers for our software to work properly.  Also if you are using Windows 2000 or Windows XP or Windows Vista/7 make sure you install DayCare 2008 into the default folder and that you have administrator rights to your computer.  Also, after installing the program, go into "Company Setup", choose "More Settings", and put a "Y" in the "Windows 2000/XP" field.   These settings will insure that our software will work properly in these new operating systems.

Our programs are not Vista/7/8/10 certified, but our test indicate that they will run on Vista/7/8/10.  You may have to choose "Allow" to a Windows prompt.  This is due to Microsoft's attempt at protecting your computer.  We recommend that you are logged in as an Administrator to your computer.  We also recommend that you install the Trial Version and test it on your computer.
