Standard and Professional Editions Overview
IMSXpress Standard and Professional Edition is a network software and has two separate components:
  • Client Application 
  • Database 
The IMSXpress client application can be installs directly on user computers; or on a Windows server and then be distributed to users by Remote Desktop Services as a Remote Application (fromerly Terminal Server).

The database is a MS SQL database. It can be installed on any MS SQL Server 2014 or higher and be accessed by the IMSXpress application over any type of network (Secured Internet, LAN, WAN, VPN, Cloud Servers, etc.).
Installation Configuration 1: Client Computers and Hosted SQL Database
Applies to Subscription Software and to SQL Standard/Professional edition software with database hosting service.

Install the client IMSXpress application directly on user Windows computers (Mac computer must run a Windows emulator, like Parallels, for example; or access through a Remote Desktops client).

When IMSXpress starts for the first time it will ask you for the database connection key that you will enter at this time.

This setup is the easiest to install. You just double-click the client installation file, and then enter the database connection key. You will be able to connect to your database from anywhere over a secure (encrypted) internet connection. Note that this setup requires that you either subscribe to the IMSXpress software or purchase from us an additional database hosting service.
Installation Configuration 2: Client Computers and SQL Database
Applies to SQL Standard/Professional edition software.

Install the client IMSXpress application directly on user Windows computers (Mac computer must run a Windows emulator, like Parallels, for example; or access through a Remote Desktops client).

Install the SQL database on any MS SQL Server version 2014 or higher and any edition, including the free SQL Express editions. The SQL server can be local, remote, or a cloud server (like SQL Azure, for example). When IMSXpress starts for the first time it pops up a connection wizard to connect the application to the SQL server.

This setup is easy to install on user computers but requires some IT expertise to install and set up the MS SQL Server. It is possible to configure this setup for remote access from anywhere.
