Legal considerations

Remember that in order to execute Banana Accounting from multiple computers, you need to buy as many licenses as there are computers that use the program.

Banana with terminal server and package management systems

Banana accounting can, without any problem, be installed on a server, a terminal server, external disks or can be packaged for distribution, because:

  • Everything necessary to execute Banana Accounting is installed in the installation directory (exe, dll, examples).
  • Banana does not write in the system directories and the system registry.
  • The user settings are stored in the registry of each user.
  • For each accounting, there is a single file that (as in Excel) can reside on a local disk, network, USB flash drive or a directory in DropBox, Google Drive, or other similar systems.
  • Banana is compatible with Remote Desktop systems or systems of software packaging for the installation.

For more information on the files, see also File - Save.

Installation on a shared folder, package management or USB key

  • Follow the normal installation procedure, usually the program will be installed under C \ Program Files \ BananaXX \  (XX stands for the version number).
  • Start the program BananaXX.exe "as Administrator".
  • Enter and save the license key.
  • Copy the entire installation directory on the USB key, shared folder or package management system.
  • The USB key can then be used on compatible computers.

If there is any doubt that there might be compatibility problems with your systems, we recommend that you do an installation with the version of the program that you download from the internet, without a license key.

Apple/Mac server installation

It is not possible to install Banana Accounting on Mac servers.
The program must be installed and the license key must be entered on each computer.
Of course, you can save the accounting files on a network disk.
