How to speed up a network connection to the KeyWatcher
Locate the HOSTS file which on Windows XP, Vista and 7 is located at: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
If your network experiences outages
Some networks are slugish or have intermitent connection issues. You can modify a setting to force the software to attempt connecting for a specified number of trys. Navigate to the folder where your database(s) are stored. Each KeyWatcher system will have one mdb file type and one kpi file. Locate the kpi for the desired system and find this line.
Simply change the number such as 10 in the example above to a higher number.

How to Change Your Server
Assuming your database(s) is stored at "\\sllvh04\KeyWatcher" you should first back up this parent and all children.
In the example below "\\sllvh04\KeyWatcher" would be replaced with the new server path. We recommend you avoid spaces in the name and as well as avoiding map drives. We strongly recommend UNC paths rather then mapped drives.
The Key-pro.ini configuration file is stored as shown below and must be modified on EVERY client.
C:\Program Files\Morse Watchman\KeyPro III
Windows 7 or Vista
C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Morse Watchman\KeyPro III
Of course do the obvious and make sure that all client copies are closed.

MS DotNet errors "Path Not Found" or "Access to the Path is Denied"
- Please understand this error has nothing to do with KeyPro.
- Ignore the first paragraph as it is generic Microsoft DotNet error.
- Never click "Continue", only Close.
- Reviewing the "Details" will also not be of any help.
This is an easy error as it literally describes your problem. Whoever is logged in does not have access to the path where the database is stored. If you attempted to access this path outside of KeyPro using Windows Explorer you would also get an error. In laymens terms, it would be no different than a MS Word or Excel doc stored on the network that you can't access. So this has nothing to do with Keypro.
Possible causes would be:
- the users permissions have changed
- the server name has been changed
- the mapped drive is lost
- the network is down
