CHAX 8.0 Upgrade Instructions:


  1. Make sure no one is running CHAX on any other machine (if networked)
  2. IMPORTANT! Create a backup copy of your entire CHAX database. On version 5.0 and earlier, the default folder is “C:\WINCHAX\”. The default folder for version 6.0 and 7.0 are in “C:\Program Files\CHAX”. The best way to create a duplicate copy of the folder and paste somewhere else like a flash drive or CD.
  3. Uninstall your previous version of CHAX.
  4. Install CHAX 8. Point the installation process to the original database folder.
  5. Run CHAX 8. Users of Chax 5.0 and earlier, please use the default username and password below.
    Username:        admin
    Password:        masteradmin
  6. Select your printer and correct tray during CHAX 8 startup.
  7. Test functionality by printing a check.
