Goldenseal Demo Troubleshooting
Help! I'm having problems with the Goldenseal demo version!
Here are answers for common questions about the Goldenseal software demo.
How do I get Started?
After you install the Goldenseal demo, do the following:
If you want to start an estimate, choose Estimates from the Income menu, then click the template button (the triangle next to the New button). Choose a project type, and you'll have a blank estimate in which to put measurements.
Differences from Full Program
The Goldenseal demo is exactly the same as what you'll buy, with one exception-- you can only enter 50 records for accounts, and for most types of business transactions. That means you can enter 50 customers, 50 estimates, 50 material purchases, etc.
Can I use the same data with the full version?
Yes. We suggest that you start out with the Sample Company file, which has data for a fake company. That makes things easier to understand, when you are first learning.
When you are ready to enter data for your own company, start by downloading a starter file. You can then use the same file with the full program, later on.
