How to install ROBOTILL without Internet connection

ROBOTILL is a Point of Sale system that you can download and install from the Internet.

If the computer you want to install on is not connected to the internet, download the required install files from www.robotill.com and select ‘Save’ instead of ‘Open’ or ‘Run’. You can then copy these files to a USB memory stick (flash drive) and run/open them on the computer where you want to install.

Below are the detailed steps to do the full ROBOTILL install (including the database server) on a computer that is not connected to the Internet.

Step 1: Download the install files

Go to the ROBOTILL Downloads and download the following files (Select 'Save' and not 'Run' or 'Open'.)
  • RobotillComplete.zip 
  • sqlexpr.exe (Do not open or run this file).
Copy the files you have downloaded to the computer where you want to install.


Step 2: Install ROBOTILL

Using the RobotillComplete.zip file, install ROBOTILL.

During the install process, the install program might detect that some required files/programs is not available like the .NET Framework. You will then need to download these files on another computer with an internet connection and run them on the computer you are installing on.

Step 3: Install the Server

Open ROBOTILL Manager. The Database Setup Wizard will start. If the Wizard detects that SQL Server needs to be installed, the following screen will be displayed:


Select the option ‘I have already downloaded the required file’ and click on ‘Next’.
A ‘Select File’ dialog will open. Select the sqlexpr.exe file that you copied to the computer.

The Wizard will then use that file instead of downloading it from the Internet to install SQL Server.

That is it!

If you need help with the install, please go to the ROBOTILL website and contact support.
