Start ORO POS for the first time

In both windows, Linux or Mac platform you can start our POS with the following command in the terminal. 

java -jar oropos.jar 

The command will require you have Oracle Java 8 version loaded in your system.  If you do not have Java 8, you can download it from here. We have included Java 8 for windows platform so you can directly click on the oropos.exe application icon to start POS.

In Windows Platform

  Click on oropos.exe file.  It may a few minutes to run it for the first time. If by mistake you run multiple instance of POS, keep only one of them running.

In Mac or Linux

  Open a terminal and start ORO POS with the following command

java -jar oropos.jar 

You can also give executable permission to oropos.sh and run.

You need to install Oracle JDK 8.  Please note that some linux distro ships with OpenJDK. ORO POS may not run properly on OpenJDK. Make sure folders have read-write permission.

 

Request Demo activation PIN

In case you have not yet received Demo PIN in your email address, you can 

Request PIN here

 

Demo License is generated on email. So use a valid email in lower case. Do not use fake or disposable emails because that may  permanently lock down your terminal license. If you have not received any PIN in 24 hours you can email helpdesk @orocube.net 

 

Activate License Online

When you have received an activation PIN, you can go online and activate that from the above form.

 

 

 

While activation of the License by PIN, your terminal must be online to download license from our server. Please make sure your port 8080 turned on in the firewall. After POS license activation your plugins may prompt you to activate them. Use same email and PIN for them. 

If you are unable to activate with PIN you need to get a license file or purchase order order#. To learn more about other ways for activation visit here.

 

Activate Offline with License File

Offline users can request for licenses over email (helpdesk @orocube.net).
