POS Software for Windows 10


ROBOTILL Version 4.2 is Windows 10 ready!

ROBOTILL is Point of Sale Software for Retail Shops and Restaurants that uses Microsoft SQL Server as the database engine. This makes the ROBOTILL system fast and robust even when there are multiple tills and back office computers connected to the same system. Even the free edition of ROBOTILL allows an unlimited number of tills and back office computers to be connected to the system.

Previously ROBOTILL was using SQL Server 2008 R2 that is not supported in Windows 10. Version 4.2 of ROBOTILL now use SQL Server 2014.

If this sounds all to technical for you, don't worry - ROBOTILL can install SQL Server for you - you can just sit back and relax. Even if you need to use multiple tills (POS Points) and back office computers, the ROBOTILL install wizard makes the installation easy.

ROBOTILL Version 4.2 can be downloaded from www.robotill.com (Click on Downloads).

Already have ROBOTILL installed with SQL Server 2008?

Before you upgrade to Windows 10, remember to do a backup of your ROBOTILL database. Although you cannot install SQL Server 2008 in Windows 10, it does continue to work after you upgraded to Windows 10. It is however a good idea to upgrade in any case.

To upgrade, simply download the SQL Server 2014 install file from the download page on the ROBOTILL Website or directly from the Microsoft website. You can then run the install file directly and just select the upgrade option. 

If you have any problems contact ROBOTILL support.

Upgrading to ROBOTILL Version 8

The ROBOTILL Version 8 release is a major release. If you are upgrading from ROBOTILL Version 7 (or earlier versions) to version 8 please take note of the following:

Normally you don't need new licence keys when upgrading, but we made some changes to our licencing system. You will need to follow the new registration instructions to get new keys (no need to pay again). We should email the new keys withing an hour or two (but allow for up to 8 hours). For this reason we suggest you do the upgrade after close of business so that you will have the new keys before you start working again.In version 8 you no longer log into the POS apps using a username and password. Usernames and passwords is used for ROBOTILL Manager and ROBOTILL Branch. For the POS Apps you now use a user PIN. With a new install the default pin is 12345. If you however upgraded from version 7 the PIN will be the user's card number. If card numbers were not used, then the user will have no PIN and you will first n…

Why you got this messageROBOTILL is registered with an international certification authority that have verified our business. They have issued ROBOTILL with a software certificate that helps protect our users as our software is signed with the certificate. 
Once a year (usually in November) we need to renew our certificate. That means we get a new certificate from the certificate authority and we sign the ROBOTILL applications with the new certificate.
The new certificate needs to build up a 'good reputation' with Microsoft SmartScreen before it will automatically bypass SmartScreen. This usually only takes a couple of days - but for some reason this year it is taking much longer. 
We are currently investigating why the SmartScreen trust is t…
