There are a number of files in a novaPDF subdirectory under the main program directory, which constitute the novaPDF printer driver used by ACCOUNTS for Saving Reports as PDF Files. The installation of this printer driver also installs a novaPDF menu under Start ⇒ Programs on your computer. There is an uninstall option in that menu.

 

The following files are in the main Data Directory for the program, whose location varies by your version of windows:

 

ACCOUNTS.iniHolds various settings stored by the program
accountsl.txtHolds your license key(s), once you have paid for ACCOUNTS.
accinst.exe, accupdt.exe etc.Any installation files that are downloaded for you by the Tools ⇒ Check for Updates menu option are stored in this directory.
anything.sqlAny saved SQL files, from the Database ⇒ SQL Select menu option's Save to SQL File button, are by default stored in this directory, unless you choose to navigate to a different directory in the Save As dialog box that comes up when you are saving them.

 

The following log files are also in the Data Directory for the program, whose location varies by your version of windows. The program displays these files to you if it needs to do so. All of these files are empty if the process they are a log file for was successful, and contain error messages (which are displayed to you by ACCOUNTS) if the process was unsuccessful.

 

BACKUP.LOGCreated each time you do a Backup/Restore ⇒ Backup Database, shows whether or not it was successful.
RESTORE.LOGCreated each time you do a Backup/Restore ⇒ Restore Database, shows whether or not it was successful.
VALID.LOGCreated each time you do a Database ⇒ Validate, shows whether or not it was successful.

 

The following files are in the DATA subdirectory under the main Data Directory for the program (except for the Network Client version, which doesn't need them).Their location varies by your version of windows:

 

OrganizationName.S4AOne or more databases of all of the information you enter. The name of the file is specified in Maintenance ⇒ Organization Info.
ACCOUNTS.METADATAAn empty database that is used to create new databases when you use File ⇒ New Database.
ACCOUNTS.DBAnother empty database, used for additional purposes.

 

The Backup subdirectory of the main Data Directory is the default initial directory for backups made with Backup/Restore ⇒ Backup Database. However, if you change that backup to be elsewhere, the location you used is memorized and used for the next backup or restore. (It is strongly recommended that you backup to a drive other than your local hard drive, such as a USB memory key or a writeable CD, in case your local hard drive dies!)

 

The Reports subdirectory of the main Data Directory is where any memorized reports from versions of ACCOUNTS prior to version 1.28 are stored. (Subsequent versions store them directly in the program's database.)
