Environment

Steps

Venus 1500 V4 was designed to work on a single stand-alone computer. This database is not designed to be shared on a server network or with multiple computers. We do have a list of options that may be tried. If you would like to review the software requirements, please visit http://www.daktronics.com/en-us/support/venus-1500/download for more information.

Recommended order of suggestion:

Option 1: Install software on a single stand-alone PC.

Option 2: Install software on a single stand-alone PC. If multiple user access is needed you may use a VNC or remote program to access the software from another computer. A few examples of remote programs are: Ultra VNC, PC Anywhere and VNC Viewer. Daktronics does not support any third party program or the setup of the VNC/Remote program.

Option 3: Save messages to Shared Drive or Desktop on one PC and bring to another PC by following How to save a presentation in Content Studio on one computer and email or transfer to another computer?
Option 4: Copy database from one PC to another by following:  Venus 1500: How do I use the Nucleus Server Database utility to transfer or save a database? Using this method will not synch up the databases.

Option 5: Retrieve messages from display on another PC by following Venus 1500: How do I retrieve my running/stored presentations and playlists from a display in V4? .
