Add or install Wintix 6 to a new workstation

(Last Updated On: September 17, 2021)

NOTE: After installing Wintix, make sure to run an update. (See instructions at the end of this post.)

  • Download the Wintix 6 setup by clicking the following link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5wicedqnk43l6op/Wintix6Setup.exe?dl=0
  • Run the Wintix6setup.exe
  • install it to C:\Wintix6
  • Run the mysql-connector-odbc-5.1.8-(win32 or win64).msi
  • Choose the Typical setup
  • Click Next
  • Click Install
  • Click Finish
  • Run the Wintix6setup.exe, install it to C:\Wintix6
  • This will create a folder on your local C drive called Wintix6
    • Inside that folder is a file called SQLRDD, which is an .ini file. That is the file you will need to edit by entering in your log-in credentials which will allow you to connect Wintix to your database.

    • If you double click on the file SQLRDD, it will open in Notepad.
    • The information in the file will look like this:
      • connString=MySQL=data4(ordata5).centerstageticketing.com;UID=yourusername;PWD=yourpassword;DTB=yourdatabasename
      • UID is user ID
      • PWD is password
      • DTB is database
    • You must change the following:
      • MqSQL, UID, PSW, DTB
    • Do not add spaces or remove characters.
    • Here is an example of how my connection string (connstring) would look:
connString=MySQL=data5.centerstageticketing.com;UID=testuser3;PWD=LAQGJ8pM;DTB=testuserdatabase
    • Once you’ve made the changes, close the file.
    • It will ask you if you want to save the changes.
    • Say yes.
  • Double click on the red/maroon Wintix6 icon on your desktop and connect to your Wintix database.

  • To be sure you have the latest update (build) for Wintix, click on ‘Download update’ and follow the prompts. If you see a message DynaZip Unzip warning – a file already exists, do you want to overwrite it?, click Yes to all.
  • Again, double click on the red/maroon Wintix6 icon on your desktop and connect to your Wintix database.
