Access is never good for multi-user with more than about 10 users! MS say: use SQL server. Of course, it all depends on the complexity of the app, the amount of data, transaction rate etc. You can also try putting the backend on a "real" server (15K rpm SCSI or sSCSI disc, Xeon CPU) and give it as much RAM as you can afford (at least 4GB) then you might get reasonable performance. If you can't do it any other way & a licence for MS SQL Server is out of the question, use MySQL as a backend: you can make Access clients talk to it as there is a free Access driver for it. You can even run MySQL under windows: you don't need Linux (although it will run faster under Linux). Setting it up is fairly easy and it will outperform an Access backend by at least an order of magnitude, if not 2 or 3 :)

How can I shared files in 2 computers. Can I have step by step. One has to see the other and viceverse, changing and sharing information about statements and bills

Well if you want to actually see each other's computers in real time you can use a desktop sharing application like cross loop (there is a free version).
If you just need to share the files I recommend dropbox. Its a free application that lets you set up a folder on your computer that you can access from any other computer. Additionally you can share it with other users. It is very easy to setup and a very reputable application.

How to restrict access to your applications on shared network?

  • If you are usually sharing your computer with someone else, then you might want to restrict their access to your applications, files or documents.
  • Using the AppLocker tool, you have a few options to do this by blocking other users to access Executables, Windows Installers, Scripts, a specific publisher or path.
  • You can simply do this by pressing the Windows key then typing Gpedit.msc. Then go to Computer Navigation -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Application Control Policies -> AppLocker. Right click on one of the options ( Executables, Installers, or Script ) and create a new rule. That should save you from a lot of headaches.

Its better if you could do this by your own. Othewise you won't learn anything :D.
Multiprocessing - An operating system capable of supporting and utilizing more than one computer processor. Multiprocessing refers to an operating situation where the simultaneous processing of programs takes place. Below are some examples of multiprocessing operating systems. This also comes with Multi Tasking and Multi user (and multi threading as well). There are SMP and ASMP systems. Read further from here It can be a system which controls a computer or any other hardware device. Examples: Unix/Linux (true support), Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional Windows use SMP and XP sometimes tends to give errors). Vista Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate support multi core and multi processing/processor technologies. (Same applies for Windows 7) Any Server OS such as Windows 2000, 2003, 2008 (not good for client computing. they are servers)
You have to analyze the actual requirement here. Multi processors or multi-core/mthreading/mtask. I don't see any necessity to run a multi processor OS though. You can select a Unix version if the cost cutting applies but need to find an application which suites it. Not sure whether you could find such an advanced application according this scenario.
RAM requirements. Depends on the OS, Workload and the Application. You can check for each OS and use recommendations. Check the application requirements and compare it with the OS. To get an idea of the work load you have to simulate a system and use compmgmt.msc and add a Performance Counter. Each application has workload data in their web sites.
Processor requirements: Pentium which class? 4 is good 2.4GHz and upwards. Better a dual core for the scenario. No need to go for a core 2 or quad core if the cost cutting involved.
Hard drive: Depends on the OS requirements. And the applications + storage. The number of customers will affect this very much. You have to re adjust it after examining the Application requirements.
If you need to share the data you have to think of a storage server and file sharing as well. (If the application supports running an internal database one of your machines should hold the database or run in in a server to support multiple users. Nowadays most apps require such. But the requirement says to store data in local PCs so you can ignore it).
Internet requirements. Analyze the required bandwidth for application in the LAN/WAN. 100mbps would be enough in most cases. Internet speed depends on the number of transactions a day. 1. Application 2. Per User. 3. Per employee. Its easier to find the app requirements. It should be available in the product sites. If not assume. (Availability, Response time, Reliability) Per user: Only if users access from the internet. Ignore otherwise (Availability, Reliability). Per Employee: Add user traffic to the findings. (Availability ,Response time, Reliability)
Internet requirements : No clue given. Check available options in your country. ADSL 2+ would suite with 1Mbps or more. This must not be a bottleneck ( in case of a single gateway failure).
Scalability Issues. You have to support scalability (in case of an expansion) Each app must support it. The network requirements must support it.
Availability = Approximately Real-Time.
Response time: Avoid bottlenecks (OS or app or network and specially no slow machines due to RAM/ Processor over utilization and HDD slowness) Sata would suite in your case (but its possible to use iSCSI since its reliable and fast).
You need a corporate printer (if cost cutting not applied - a print server). Otherwise a shared printer. (You can use Windows work group - May differ in Unix) Fax if necessary. Its fine if all in one machine could be purchased. There are low cost solutions from HP.
A backup database or a HDD.
An E-mail solution. (You can utilize public platforms as well such as Yahoo - Offers more security).
Reliability : The major factor Bottlenecks >>> 1. PC hardware (you can use the required). 2. LAN Switch and/ or Router (If and only if the network needs to be analyzed. Use a hot standby switch / router to avoid bottleneck. How ever if there is not much necessity for a Network environment you can just use an ADSL router with a switch. Switch should address scalability issues). 3. Using a backup connection such as a Modem connection for internet.
I don't think labor requirement is an issue. A user who has capabilities to administrate the systems will be enough. 1 Person. Antivirus / File Antivirus / Firewall (a must). Recovery software if needed.
Hope this helps to give an idea.

How to create an application which should expire in 30 days

at the time of installation, write down the date in a secret file or database.
each time the application starts check the difference in days from the current date.

each time the application starts save in another place the application last started date.
if the user tries to change the computer date, then you will know if he has set it before the last started date or before the installation date.
