After you have installed the Server software, you are ready to create a New Company.
This is done via the Server software itself (all database activity related to Companies is managed through the Server, not the Client)
Go to your System Tray in Windows, lower right corner of your screen, and click on the Spire icon.
This will bring up the Spire Server Company List. Select the File navigation menu and select Create New Company from the drop down.
The next window will ask you to create a name for your actual database – use a short name with no spaces rather than the full company name here.
On this next screen, you may enter all the Company information in full.
Then you will be prompted to create an Admin user and Password for the company. Note that the password is case-sensitive.
Next you will be prompted to enter a date for your Fiscal Year End.
You will be shown a Summary screen – click on Finish to complete your registration.
You will be prompted for the Admin password you set up during installation of the Server.
The last step in setting up your new company is in scheduling the database snapshot schedule. You will want to select the interval, the time you want the snapshot to occur and the amount of snapshots you wish to keep.
