This section will explain how to install Aloha onto a terminal (Do this at the location the terminal is staying at)

1. Insert a USB into the docking station that has the Aloha Term Tab Install folder on it.
2. Go to the network adapter settings and change the name of the network you are on (wifi or LAN) to ALOHA.
3. In the Aloha Term Tab Install folder, run the Aloha Network Config file as admin. Type in ALOHA since you renamed the network connector already and it should say Operation Successful.
4. Set up the IP to be on the same as the other devices and the last octet should be set to 100 + the number of the terminal you are setting up. Reboot.
5. In the Aloha Term Tab Install folder, run the SetupTrm file in troubleshoot compatibility mode > Troubleshoot program > I don't see my problem > Windows xp (service pack 3) > I don't see my problem > test the program.
6. Install options should be set accordingly to the terminal you are setting up. Unless it is a master terminal the server and master capable settings should be unchecked. Switch the TableService to QuickService and check the Double Click option. make sure the server name is EXACTLY as the servers actual name. Fill out the rest accordingly. Click ok and restart the device.
7. After the reboot, be sure to quickly cancel the command prompt that will appear before it executes the command list. type run into windows search and press enter. Type Shell:startup in the prompt and press enter. Copy the IBER config file onto the desktop and rename it to Restart ALOHA, and then change the icon for it to the one in the backgrounds&icons folder in Aloha Term Tab Install.
8. Right click and edit the file by adding the command Ping -n 6 to the top of the document. Save the file and run it as an admin. It will restart a few times and each time it restarts be ready to close the command prompt before it finishes and then keep running the Restart ALOHA file as an admin until it works. (It should restart 2 or 3 times)
