BackUps

Backup your Accumulatus directory, all it's subdirectories, and all it's files on a regular basis. Backups can be made on:

• external, portable harddrives.
• flash drives.
• writable CD/DVDs.
• "cloud-based" services such as Mozy, Dropbox, or Carbonite.

Regardless of what media is chosen for your backups, backups should be consistently and reliably done, and available (when needed). Registered users also get access to a BackUp and Restore procedure which backs up all of Accumulatus and Site users can upload files to our FTP site for web development/technical support

Error #111 - Cannot Update the Cursor IRFVON, since it is read only.

In Windows explorer, go to the c:\program files\Accumulatus folder and right click on it, select properties and click on Read Only and then Apply. Then click on OK to “ Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files”. If this does not correct the problem, refer also to Install Problems for more information.

Install Problems

Install problems can be caused by anti-virus and security programs like Norton Security Suite and McAfee Total Protection. Before you install Accumulatus, temporarily disable these programs to allow the install process to occur without interference. Once the install program is complete, re-enable your anti-virus and security program.
