YP SPRINT EPOS PROGRAM WHICH IS MSDOS PROGRAM

by CROFTONS / December 18, 2009 5:58 AM PST

don't know much about computers but we had a till system about 8 years ago which operated on ms dos. when we no longer needed it (2005), we stopped the program automatically starting when the pc booted up, and have since been using the pc for other admin tasks. Now we are wanting to restart the program to use it as a till again, but how do we find the program, and what commands would be used at the msdos prompt to get it going again. We can find lots of individual folders and files relating to it but not what we need
Does this make any sense to someone ?
Thank you in anticipation of any help, i'm stuck.

Seems such a program

Would come with a manual or an author, company to provide support. Look around for the documentation and CDs for this.

only have the most basic operational manuals for this system, which tells you how to do things once you are using it, not anything technical. Have at last found the ms dos program which controls the back office. The problem now is that the till itself which links to the back office pc via a hub, requires a c|backroom password which we have no way of typing in. Does anyone know if this is usual, or if there is a way around it.
thank you

And without any name, company or web link it looks like the outlook is grim. Is there a support contract or a business card buried in your manuals on this system?

Hi, I'm not sure if you still need this...but create a shortcut on the desktop and for the file to start - the path is 'c:\epos\zoffice.exe'
