How do I install PostBooks?
The xTuple Desktop Client Installer
Once you download the xTuple Desktop Client Installer, run the installer on the machine where you want to install the client.
The installer lets you select which components you want to install. If you are installing xTuple PostBooks Edition for the first time, we recommend that you install all components. This will give you the xTuple client and the Updater application.
On a later step in the installation process you are asked if you want to create a Free Trial account for the xTuple Cloud Service. If you select the Free Trial option, you will need to fill in all the required account information, as we will review and approve your account request. You do not need to register for a Free Trial if you have already done so via xTuple.com.
If you already have an account on xTuple.com and you would like to add a Free Trial, you can add Free Trial to an existing xTuple.com account by applying for the Free Trial on the website. Follow the link, sign in and fill out the form to apply.
If you choose to register for a Free Trial, complete the client installation and wait to receive your confirmation email.
If you plan to install your own PostgreSQL server, please finish installing the Desktop Client and then read the full instructions for installing xTuple PostBooks Edition, client and server.
