You can print multiple labels on a sheet of Avery (or equivalent) labels. See section 4.3.12 of your EVE Help Manual. EVE Also prints labels using a dedicated Zebra barcode label printer, (we recommend Zebra LP2844 or the Zebra TLP2844) or the Zebra GK 420d. Please check with us before buying a printer.

There are a few steps you need to take to move your EVE database to a different computer:

  1. install EVE Server on the new computer
  2. set security options on the new server so other computers can communicate with it
  3. restore the backup to the new computer
  4. direct all EVE Clients to the new server

1. Install EVE Server

Click here to visit the downloads page and download the latest version of EVE Client and Server.

Click here for installation instructions including system requirements.

2. Set security options

Click here for instructions on how to open up SQL Server so other computers can communicate with it on the network and for information on Firewall settings.

3. Restore Database Backup

If you don't already have a database backup, click the EVE Globe icon at the top right of EVE and click Backup Now.  You can do this in EVE on any computer connected to the old server but, regardless of which computer you use, the backup file will be created on the old server.  EVE will tell you the location of the backup file when the backup is complete.  It will have a .bak extension and will be called eve.bak or PCName_eve.bak where PCName is the name of your old server computer.  But, if you have renamed the database in the past it will have a different name with the .bak extension.  

Copy your most recent backup file into the folder called C:\EVE Backups on the new server.  Start the EVE Database Utilities program (it is located in the ISSYS folder on your Start menu and the filename is c:\Program Files (x86)\Integrated Scuba Systems\EVEServer\EVEDBUtils.exe) and click OK on the Connect form.  

Click Restore Database and then Apply 

Database Utilities

On the Restore DB form, use the values shown in the screenshot below but replace eve.bak  with the name of your backup file if different.  Click Restore Database.  This will cause your database to be restored to the C:\EVEDB folder - i.e. after the restore you should see eve.mdf and eve.ldf in that folder.

Restore Database

4. Direct all EVE Clients to the new server

Open EVE on each PC where you have it installed.  At the Connect prompt, click Edit Settings.  Change the Data Source entry to be the name of the new server computer with an \EVE suffix

e.g.  NewEVEServer\EVE

If you followed the instructions above, the Database will be called eve but, if you called it something else, make sure you set the Database entry appropriately
