Select BUSY Model window
Select BUSY Model window is basically divided into three parts:
- Select Edition
- Database Type
- User Type
This part of the Select BUSY Model window displays all the available BUSY models. Each model displays the basic features available in addition to the features available in its preceding or lower model. You can select the model as per your requirement.
Under this part, two options, MS Access and MS SQL appear. Basically BUSY uses either of these two databases for its back-end processing. You can select the required database type. This option is not available for BUSY BS model as BS model uses only MS Access as its database type.
Under this part, you can select that whether you want to run BUSY in single-user mode or multi-user mode. If you use MS SQL as database type then you can run BUSY only in multi-user mode.
To reflect any changes in BUSY application, you have to restart the BUSY application. For example, if you have selected edition as Enterprise then you have to restart the BUSY application to run it in Enterprise edition.
If a security device (Dongle) is attached on the computer and you have selected a model other than as specified in Dongle then a Model Conflict message box appears on running the BUSY application. If you want to run BUSY as per the dongle information then click the As per Security Device button in the message box otherwise if you want to run BUSY application in the model as specified by you using the Select BUSY Model option then click the As Specified by You button.
