Basically Tabbles needs a database running on MSSQL Server 2008 or above (any version): as long as you can get it up and running. This may be handy [...]

Hi guys, we finally found out why Tabbles Local does not work on some machines (meaning that it crashes or gives an error message when you press the "Go" button).

Hi all, this is a frequently asked question. Sometimes, when trying to set up Tabbles Lan, the "create database" button succeeds, but then you try the "create user" button and you get "Error connecting to database": In this case, the reason is almost certainly that you did not enable Sql Authentication in your Sql Server installation.

How to upgrade the database

By |2017-11-17T20:32:05+00:00July 8th, 2014|howto, Tabbles|

Hi all, this replies to a frequently asked question. Sometimes, when installing the latest version of Tabbles, you are asked to "upgrade the database". (This is needed because Tabbles 3 is client-server, and upgrading the client does not automatically upgrade the database.) It turns out you can do that with a couple of clicks.
