RMS Installation

We recently acquired a new client (single location outdoor mercandizer) with 
an existing RMS installation.  One of our first tasks was to install a new 
workstation and add RMS.  Upon installation on the desktop, I can connect to 
the SQL database on the "server" with Store Operations Administrator, but 
NOTHING happens with Store Operations Manager except a dialogue box stating 
it can't hit the database.  How do I point SOM to the database????  Thanks in 
advance for the help!!!

Make sure you log into Windows as an administrator before you set the 
File/Configuration settings, otherwise, they won't be saved.

Windows Installer launches when user opens new mail
In Outlook 2003, (running XP Pro) after installing the Junk-mail filter update, each time the user tries to open a new message, the Windows installer launches. Whether it is allowed to complete or cancelled the message opens, but the problem happens again with each new message. I've tried the Detect and Repair for Office and it finishes successfully, but doesn't fix the problem. I've checked the properties on the .dat file for the update and it looks to be installed.

Side-by-side installation of Visio 2003 and VEA that came with VS 1.0 Enterprise

I can't speak for M$, but they respond that it does work (although a pain in the butt to reboot when you need to move from one to the other, also since the VEA version is really v2002 understand the VEA version may not read the v2003 files).

Outlook 2003 install bandwith questions
We are looking at upgrade about 70,000 users worldwide from Outlook 2000 to 2003. We were looking at using the cached mode by default. The network people are concerned that as we upgrade groups of people the .OST generation process will saturate the bandwidth of the connections both in the datacenter leading to the Excahnge servers and in the area the outlook upgrade took place.

Microsoft RMS Integrated CC processing
I have a client who will charge their customers a deposit for a boat rental. Does RMS allow for an authorization to the credit card? Meaning- will it verify funds and authorize that amount, but not actually transact that amount until requested at the POS? My thought is that this will not work. On a ZON machine- you can press a button that allows for a transaction to be authorized, or charged, and I dont know of a way this would work with the credit card integration. How would you suggest deposit transactions in RMS? Thanks, Andrea Andrea, Can't do it within RMS. Maybe with TPI ...
