The installation of two business tiers on a single PC or server is not recommended as it can lead to confusion of which installation is in use and difficulty upgrading each business tier.

Note: This process has not been fully tested in 'real world' conditions. It will allow you to install the business tier twice on the same computer and allow you to have two different instances of CAREWare running at the same time.

  1. Install CAREWare as normal for the first instance
  2. Create a new business tier directory at C:\Program Files\CAREWare
    This can be called RW CAREWare Business Tier 2
  3. Copy the entire contents of the Business Tier directory at C:\Program Files\CAREWare\RW CAREWare Business Tier to the new directory you just created.
  4. Go to Start>Run and type 'CMD' (No ' ') and click 'OK'
  5. Type sc create "RWCAREWareBusinessTier2" binpath= "C:\Program Files\CAREWare\RW CAREWare Business Tier 2\RWCAREWareBusinessTier.exe start=auto"
  6. Install a second database for CAREWare using the RWCAREWareInstaller.exe
  7. Go to the RW CAREWare Business Tier 2 directory
  8. Right click on server.config
  9. Select "Open With..." Notepad
  10. Change the port number to 8125
  11. Click "File">"Save As"
  12. Select "All Files" from the File Type menu
  13. Press "Save"
  14. Right click on serverNoEncryption.config
  15. Select "Open With..." Notepad
  16. Change the port number to 8125
  17. Click "File">"Save As"
  18. Select "All Files" from the File Type menu
  19. Press "Save"
  20. Open the CW Admin.exe
  21. Press "Stop Server"
  22. Highlight the DatabaseConnectionString and press "Edit"
  23. Change the instance name, which appears after the \, to the name of the new database you just created.
  24. Click on "Save"
  25. Click on "Port" and change the number to 8125 and click "Save"
  26. Change the Table Name (upper right corner pull down menu) to LocalNumberStorage
