If you are still running software before BW10v042. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
so that you can be provided with assistance with your upgrade to
Tpt-Ops BW11v02. There are changes that need to be
made to the data structures as well as programs. Any current data will NOT be affected.
The upgrade provides more facilities and less user effort WITH EXISTING DATA.
Additional Software Provided :
The Utility Programs from 3rd-parties (see below). Some of the specialised tasks
in Tpt-Ops benefit from these Utilities. eg. Student Bus Pass printing.
BTA-Extensions BusWise incorporates a
comprehensive STUDENT MANAGEMENT MODULE for printing of School Bus Passes and managing
other mail-outs (such as Behaviour Issues etc..). Student Passes may also require the completion
of Council or State Travel Application forms. In Queensland, Australia this is
the BTA form controlled by DTMR. The module to enable the capture of these BTA forms is
provided by the BTA-Extensions. The module provides any additional requirements which
are not already included in the STUDENT MODULE and Students are assigned to the BTA form.
BusWise 08v034 must be installed before the BTA-Extensions
will operate correctly. When the BTA menu is selected for the first time the necessary
Tables will be created automatically.
It is NOT necessary to apply the BTA-Extensions if the BTA facilities are not required.
Extensions for other Government interfaces will be developed as they are identified.
Adobe © Read PDFs is an older version of the Adobe Acrobat software which
enables one to read files with a .PDF extension. Most people have a later version of
this program already installed so this program will probably never be required.
.PDF stands for Packed Data Format files and a number
of files in BusWise are of this type.
There is a special program included with the distribution CD
which allows you to create .PDF files instead of printing them. This provides an
excellent way of storing printouts for repeated display rather than using paper.
This program will then read the .PDF files created.
acrobat_rp505enu.exe should only be installed if you do not already have a copy
of Adobe © Acrobat or Adobe © Reader installed on your system.
This is an older version of the software which we provide because it is less complicated
to install and to use than most of the later versions. This
version is no longer supported by Adobe and they would recommend that you upgrade to
their latest upgrade versions available on their site.
CommandBurner.zip Command burner is an excellent utility for creating CDs or DVDs.
It is ideal for creating copies of the complete c:\wamp\ folder which is
positively the best way to backup BusWise .
This keeps the complete system together as an entity.
It can be done while the system is operational but this is not really recommended
because you do not have a precise back-up point on record.
It is best to take a FULL SYSTEM BACKUP at some regular fixed time.
The system will fit on a CD (720MB) for even larger organisations so a daily
backup first thing each morning would probably be ideal
is very useful for saving reports.
This utility enables an office to become as close as possible to a paperless office.
Once installed it appears in the Windows list of printers as if it is
another printer. Which in fact it is!
Except that the output from the .PDF creator can be saved to a folder on your
disk and displayed using Adobe © Acrobat at any time you need to do so.
This avoids the need for paper files (filing cabinets) or keeping many paper records.
You just need to keep your .PDF files in a defined directory ( so that they
can easily be found again )
and ENSURE THAT THESE DIRECTORIES ARE RECORDED in your back-up policies and procedures.
AVERY DesignPro 5.EXE ©

Student passes in the STUDENT MODULE. More information is provided in the HELP database for
the Student Module.
