Smart Office Installation
This is my first project and I am going to attempt to install Smart office on a Server. I've downloaded the install guide from Lawson's website but it seems I need to install Websphere on the server before I install anything else. Is this true? Does anyone have any suggestions before I begin installing? Please give me any advise you have or knowledge. Anything and everything can help. Thanks!  Read More...

Thanks for joining us this month.

Even if you have used SQL Server before, there are slight differences in these features compared to earlier SQL Server versions. These differences might cause changed behavior in your own applications.
