Database in use
If you are using Firebird SQL you will see: Firebird SQL/RDBMS.
If you are using AFX you will see: AFX Database Engine
If you see AFV or no entry at all in this position is means that you are using the AFV data stucture.

Installing without Internet Access
* If you wish to install Mailtraq in an environment that does not have a permanent or automatic Internet connection then you should download your key file and keep it on disk.
For New Installations
Store the key file on a USB thumb drive that you can take to the machine on which Mailtraq will be installed.
When Mailtraq is first run, it will ask for an Installation ID or Registration Key File (see image below).
Select the I have a Registration Key File option and enter the filename to your downloaded .key file.
For Existing Installations
If you have previously installed a key, and wish to upgrade to this key, you can download a registry patch.
Save the file to your machine, maintaining the .reg extension, and then run the file to update your registry with the new key.
Use the 64bit registry patch for 64bit editions of windows, otherwise use the 32bit patch file.
You will need to reboot the server after applying the .reg file.
