Postcode Desktop Software: Local Data

Our Desktop Postcode Finder Software "Local Data" does not use Internet-based data. It is ideal for standalone computers such as till solutions, etc

  We recommend you use our web-based address data for initial testing. Then when happy download and install the local data files.

Step 3 - Install

Unzip the contents of the file downloaded to a directory, either on each PC or to a shared network directory. The program requires full rights to the installed directory.

Then run "ClientInstall.exe", from the chosen installed directory, on each PC. This will place the Simply Postcode Desktop software in the start-up group, so it is always available to the user. You may be required to reboot the PC during installation.

When the first run the system will ask for an unlock code:

Add Postcode Look up License 

Please ring 01945 464854, or use contact us, for your activation code, quoting your:

  • License ID, which is on the e-mail sent to you when you opened the account and the first screen of your on-line account record.
  • Site ID, which is shown on the unlock window (see above). This is unique for each installation. So if installed on a network then the system has only one site number. If installed on separate PC's then each PC will have a different Site ID and require a different Activation code.

Very Important Very Important : Once installed the software cannot be moved, since it will affect the licensing. So choose the installation configuration and location carefully.

When going into the settings on the desktop postcode finder software, it will ask for a password. When used in local mode this password is "LocalMode".
