VetMaster runs circles around other programs by displaying information as
you type. Many have told us
that it is actually fun to use. The program is faster and easier to use than program costing thousands.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION AND LINKS
BACKUP (do not use CD)
We do not suggest CD backup. CD's do not verify that the data is there and can wear out!
If you backup to CD continually check that the files can be copied and run on another machine!
We backup to removable USB 2.0 devices which can be plugged into any of our machines.
The USB drivers are installed on each machine in our network so any machine can be used.
This is a better approach. The system can be copied to any machine.
This can be automated by clicking or pressing End Command to backup at the Main Menu
If backing up to Iomega Zip disks use a different disk for each day of the week. Label them Sunday through
Monday and backup to the correct disk each day. This gives you much more protection. It is also a good
idea to periodically take a disk outside of the practice.
Hint: Add a second line to your [C]ommand to backup
statement to copy to a workstation.
The workstation needs a sharable folder. "Z:" is mapped to a workstation in this example.
XCOPY /E/R/Y/F/D *.* Z:\UNIQUE\*.*
Test the backup: RUN Z:\UNIQUE\GO Return to main page
/E backup directories and subdirectories even if empty
/R allows overwriting read-only files
/Y eliminates asking for yes/no answers
/F full names are displayed while copying (optional)
/D backup only files whose source file is newer than destination file (optional)
BATTERY BACKUP for each
All systems should be backed up daily and protected by a UPS (uninterruptible power supply.) This is a must
for all systems. Power outages can cause data loss and damage the computer.
PRINT FROM A DISCONTINUED/OLD VERSION
Versions before 5.627 must be updated if support for Windows print drivers is required. Old printers had
electronics in them to generate characters. Printer manufacturers have reduced the cost of printers by
installing print driver programs to generate the characters by the computer instead of the printer.
Newer versions of our software have the option tilde + x to support print direct or using the print driver.
Printing direct is only supported by printers with electronics in them to generate characters.

BYPASS PRINT DRIVER USING WINDOWS XP
Can I bypass the print driver for faster printing using XP to an LPT port with a printer that doesn't need a driver? Yes.
Type NET USE LPT2: \\MachineName\PrinterShareName /Persistent:Yes at a command prompt one-time only.
Replace MachineName and PrinterShareName with the correct names from the machine sharing the printer.
Be sure the printer is marked sharable on the machine hooked to the printer.
Print a test page from the workstation to be sure connection is being made.
An icon must appear for the printer on the workstation for this to work
You may now set VetMaster's tilde key + X menu to route the walkout printer to LPT2 in this example.
In Doty: press tilde key + X PRINT DIRECT will appear in the upper right hand corner of the Main Menu
