Starting up the DASHBOARD Server processes

Login as edmen\powerforce2

Here the display is PowerShell - though I often swap into DOS by keying "cmd". PowerShell works just fine

Exec a "dir" to get a directory listing. You'll note the 2 directories outlined.

Note the commands executed, change into each of these directories

Here execute a "dir" in each directory to confirm what is in each directory.
You'll note that here I exec the batch file directory, however, further down I show how you ought to correctly execute the commands - that is to preface them with the "start" command.

So, here you would execute "start start.cmd", so that the batch file executes in a new DOS window. However, it appears that PowerShell throws the command into a new session.

Once you execute the command, the new window will display content similar to that shown below.

Now, move into the other directory, and check the files through "dir", and execute the "start.cmd"


The last part is then to start the Powerforce application that does the database sync between Powerforce and the SQL.

The commands to do this are shown at the bottom of this next image, which brings you to the image shown against "2".

Once the Powerforce application environment starts, double click on the SRP EDITOR

Open the file "nv_dashboard", and excute the program by clicking on the "!" as shown below.

Once the Powerforce application starts, the manner in which you stop the code is to run the 'db-off' command, which will cause the program to stop.

Then to re-start it, and enable the re-start you must ensure that you run 'db-on' so that the code will run.

Once the Powerforce program runs, it pauses for 30 seconds and the display shows similar to the image below.
