The Mobile POS can be used as stand-alone, server and client mode. The Windows RT tablet only supports "Client" mode. Therefore, if you launch the App under Windows RT,you can choose either connect to "Cloud server" on the cloud or "Network Server" on the local network. To enable the Windows 8 device works as server or stand-alone mode just choose "Connect to Itself", then click OK.

The CouchDB service is needed to support the standalone and server mode, please install the couchDB 1.2(or higher) for Windows on the machine before launching the App. Make sure you set up the couchDB as a service. For more detail instructions please go tocouchdb.apache.org.

The very first time you run the App, a setup screen will ask for the activation code which you should automatically receive when you register with POS IN CLOUD.
after entering the code, if the code is correct, a pop-up will ask you to select the store you want to install on the machine
It will take 3 to 5 minutes to load the store data into local machine, once loaded you will be able to run the App even offline.
 If you set your "request login" settings on portal as "Yes", then you will need to enter the password on the dashboard login screen, the default password is "1234" if you did not set up the settings on portal. Click at the "head" icon to login after entering the password.
you will be able to use the POS after you success log in
