    I have tried everything you suggested, I have had this sytem for about 6 to 7 years and about 1.5 years ago was having problems with it and got talked into the new version and tech support for one year and that was not cheap. The new system has been good so far and had no reason to change the quick buttons till now. and of course I can't call tech support because it been over a year, it is not worth the $1000 cost of tech support.

Hi dale388,
Several possibilities. You need to click on the button you wish to change. You need to check the box 'Display this button'. I think that some functions require you to log out and back in to see the change. If you have more than one schedule, to need to be editing the schedule that is currently running to see changes. Are you making the changes on the server. If not, the station you are on may not be communicating with the server properly.

    I think it would be worth your time to reload RPE. The only other course would be to directly edit the database where the button functions reside. Tech support is indeed quite steep. I can do it for much less.

Station asking to register

Are you running this station wirelessly? Last I checked, pcAmerica does not recommend using wireless workstations. Correct your wireless problem. This is not related to RPE. Or run a temporary line to workstation. Verify you are connected to your network and re-register RPE.

Print to a usb printer using cre 10.5, it prints plank small page at the top and at the bottom of each receipt printed. Can any one help

This is fixed by changing the document settings under windows properties for the printer, not in RPE. Right click on your printer and select properties. Choose printing preferences. Click Operations tab. Click End of Document button. In paper cut box, uncheck feed setting and move slider to manual cut. Click OK, then APPLY, then OK, OK.
In RPE, under Friendly Printer Settings, check Cut receipt at this station.

RPE POS, multiple menus, no instructions were found to add menu items to a specific menu.

To select which menu you want to change, go to OPTIONS screen, SETUP, TOUCH SCREEN CONFIGURATION. Click on the top right button, SCHEDULE: DEFAULT. A list of your menus will appear and you can select which one you wish to edit. If only DEFAULT appears, you do not have multiple menus, at least on this station. Each station can be programmed differently. If you need outside hep with your menu, send me an email.

I setup a POS for a chain restaurant. I get the PC America with the DELL advertise. This is what I understand. The Main office: PC w/ The RPE Enterprise version. The remote site ( Restaurant) : PC w/ RPE...

I'm not quite sure what your problem is. Do you need help with the entire setup? You should have 3 months of free tech help from PCAmerica if you just purchased/registered this software.

Restaurant Pro Express - Shared Printer - wierd scenario

Delete printer from PC it is not connected to(PC2). Make sure you can print a test page in windows from PC it is connected to(PC1). Then check on sharing. Make sure the share name is the same as what 3rd PC is looking for(PC3). Print to printer from PC3. On PC2, set up and install as a network printer. If all PCs can print to kitchen printer from windows, then you should not have to make any changes in RPE.
Also, if you cloned everything including the RPE folders, you may not be syncing properly. Check by changing the price of something and saving. It should change on the other stations also. Make this test from each station.

Problem configuring client station

easiest solution is to avoid their sync stuff all together, i've almost never gotten it to work correctly. what i generally do is set up the client station as a "stand-alone" and put the server address for the server name. that usually does the trick, only lick is that if the server goes down, your toast, the client goes down too.
