Thank you for supporting the development of Chrysanth Cheque Writer. I am always committed to keeping the free cheque writing software available to as many people as possible. The free edition should already be sufficient for most users' purpose. The paid upgrade is mainly offered to some of the users who have additional needs for cheque printing and record keeping, as well as for those who would like to financially support the development of the free Cheque Writer.

There are 4 paid upgrade editions available, the Basic, Basic +1, Network and Network +1:

  • Basic and Basic +1 editions contain all the features listed on this page WITHOUT the networking related features.
  • Network and Network +1 editions contain all the features listed on this page AND the networking related features.
  • Basic +1 and Network +1 editions come with 1 Year Free Upgrade, which potentially includes update of cheque format (due to change of cheque design), addition of new cheque formats and bug fixes.
  • Each purchase of Basic or Basic +1 edition comes with 1 User License.
  • Each purchase of Network or Network +1 edition comes with 2 Client Licenses, which means you are allowed to install the software on 2 computers on the same network to be used by 2 different users. If you require more user licenses, e.g. for 9 users in your network environment, you may purchase 5 copies which in turn grant you 10 Client Licenses.

In order to set up the data connection successfully, you will need to install the database server on the Server Computer first. The Network Edition is making use of a powerful client-server SQL database server called Firebird version 2.5.

Please download either the 32-bit or 64-bit database server for your Windows computer from the links below:

Download 32-bit Firebird 2.5 database server Windows installer

Download 64-bit Firebird 2.5 database server Windows installer

Please note that ONLY Firebird version 2.5 is supported. DO NOT use other Firebird versions. Network Edition only supports Firebird 2.5 installation on Windows with default options.

After downloading the Firebird 2.5 Windows installer, you may proceed to install the database server on your Server Computer that will host the shared data file for all users (Note: No need to run the installer on user computers as the database server is only required on the computer that hosts the shared data file). Run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions by accepting the default options. Don't change the default options unless you know exactly what you are doing.

Once the Firebird 2.5 server is successfully installed, you may install and run Chrysanth Cheque Writer (Network Edition) on user computers. On your first run, the Network Edition will prompt you for network connection settings as shown below.

Share data through a powerful database server

Network Connection Settings:

  • Server IP - the IPv4 address of the Server Computer that hosts the data file, which is also the computer that you installed the Firebird 2.5 server. The value of '' or 'localhost' refers to the current computer that Chrysanth Cheque Writer is running.
  • Server Port - the port number for the database server running on the Server Computer.
  • Path to Data File - the absolute path for the data file on the Server Computer, e.g. C:\Data\DB.CSDB. Please check the section below about Accessing the Shared Data.
  • Server Username - the username of a Firebird user account. It is very important to make sure that all Network Edition users who are accessing the same shared data file is making use of the same Firebird user account, otherwise it may cause data access problems when one of the Network Edition software is newer than the rest.
  • Server Password - the password of the same Firebird user account.

Accessing the Shared Data:

  • If you have an existing data file that you would like to share with other users on the network, you may copy the data file to the Server Computer and enter the data file location into the "Path to Data File" field in the Network Connection settings window and click Open.

    Note: Your existing data file is at C:\Users\<User Profile Name>\AppData\Roaming\Chrysanth\Data\DB.CSDB (Please note that this is a hidden folder in your system, you will need to make it visible by changing the Windows Explorer option first)
  • If you would like to start with a new data file, then you just have to specify where you want to store the data file on the Server Computer in the "Path to Data File" field, and click Create.
  • If you need to share your Network Connection settings with other users, you may access File->Network Connection.
