I am struggling with a fresh install of SambaPOS Version 4.1.82 on Windows 10 Pro x64.
When I run the program, I get the below error message.
I have uninstalled the software and re-installed several times and on several different Windows Users Accounts
I have also deleted the user accounts in windows and started the user accounts from scratch, with no luck.
What type of DB Engine are you installing?
That table (
[VersionInfo]) is one of the Tables in the DB (among many others), and it must exist for SambaPOS to run.
If you are using SQL Express or SQL LocalDB, you should use SSMS to connect to the Engine and verify the DB exists.
I am running what the SambaPOS installer installs.
Just thinking ahead, when I use this SMSS to check that DB, what do I do if it isn’t there OR if it is there?
Both Compact and Local DB are Database Engines. They are different, and you do not need (nor want) both. Do not install Compact SQL; it is deprecated and not recommended.
Uninstall Compact SQL.
Look in your User Documents folder for the SambaPOS folder. If there is a SambaPOS
SDF file in there, delete it (this is a Compact DB). In fact, delete everything in the SambaPOS folder.
Install SambaPOS without Compact SQL.
