Whats New

Introduced new features Whats New.

The New features Whats New is accessible from Menu Help->Whats New.

As the name suggests, Whats New pertains to what is new in the software or the new updates available in the software. Every time any changes or update in the software or fixing of bug in the software is now updated and uploaded on the blog, which can be viewed from the software by clicking on the whats new menu item.

So now, you can click on Whats new before downloading the software to check if any important changes/updates in the software useful for you, then you can download or continue using the same last version.

In fact, whats new takes you to in-built web browser now provided in the Quicksoft ArtRMPP software. So now, you don’t need to come out of the software to surf or visit any site or for google search, etc., When you click on whats new, it by default takes you to the https://artrmpp.wordpress.com a blog site created specifically to upload the changes in the petrol-pump software and notify existing customers of updates in the software, which otherwise was very difficult and time consuming to inform to all the customers. Informing all the customers would also be costly and highly time consuming if to be informed by calling each of them, even mailing would not reach to all the customers as people use multiple email accounts and so on.

In the browser, we have also provided the Bookmark Button button next to Go Button to save the url surfed by you just like add to favourite provided in Internet Explorer. Also you can goto any of your favourite site by clicking on the My favourite button in the tool bar. By default following sites are added in the My Fvourite

Also there is a Quicksoft Services logo/button provided to switch to http://www.quicksoftservices.com

Mass Mailing / Mail Merge
Now you can send mail to your customers, suppliers or employees the email from inside the software by clicking on the Utilities->Mail Merge menu item. In fact, in the previous version also the Mail Merge was working to send the email, but it was using the cumbersome MAPI protocol, the Mail API Protocol would use the Mail Outlook which was also slow and not very reliable to send the mail through vb application. So now, we have changed it to use built in CDO protocol to send the email.

Just Select the customer, suppliers or employees to whom you would like to send the email. Click on the particular customer for which the email address is already entered in the customer master. As soon as you click on the customer it would display the email address for the selected customer in the text box. Next enter the text you would like to send and select the attachment / file to be send as attachment and select text format for body text as HTML or Text format. You can also copy paste you HTML code in the body text area to send the text as HTML message.

Click on the Send Message to send the email.

Please note that we frequently update the Software for incorporating the new updates and new features.

Users are advised to regularly visit the www.quicksoftservices.com/download page and check for availability of new updates. The download page displayed the date of update as shown below:

Software Update

Software Update

To Update the software to newer version, all you need to do is just download the Software by downloading the Software (ArtRMPP.zip) 3.77MB as shown above.

After downloading the ArtRMPP.zip (software), extract the ArtRM.exe file and  just Replace it with the existing version in C:\Program Files\ArtRM folder.

Before downloading the updated version of the software from the website, always make sure, you rename the existing version of the software in use to some different name than ArtRM.exe. This is very important because, in the event of partial file download or download fails due to crc check-error or any other reason, if by chance you overwrite the new version with corrupted copy then you will loose the working copy, therefore it is always advised to first rename the working copy or move it to the safe place to restore it back in the event of download copy not usable.

As such, we make sure that the uploaded copy is free of bug, but if by chance the new copy is having bug and you overwrite by mistake then you need to continue working with previous version and therefore it is always advisable to have last working copy in safe place.

Installation creates the Short-cut of the Software in Programs Menu

Click on Start->Programs->Quicksoft->ArtRMPP to start the software


Start Software by Clicking on the ArtRM.exe in C:\Program Files\ArtRM folder.

Create Short-cut on Desktop

Locate the ArtRM.exe in C:\Program Files\ArtRM Folder, right-click on the ArtRM.exe and Send to Desktop to create the shortcut of the ArtRM application on your desktop.

The Default username and password is as follows:

username: admin

password: sa       (case sensitive, small letters)

You may change the default password “sa” by clicking on the “Change Password” in Administration Menu.


It is strongly recommended to take back-up of the existing working software version before replacing the downloaded version, because it is quite possible that after replacing the new version, if due to download error or CRC error writing the file or due to any reason if the new version does not work then you can always continue working by restoring back the last working copy of software version (which is possible only if you have taken the back-up)

If disk space is not a constraint then it is strongly advised to set back-option to Advanced in the Administration->Configuration Screen so as to take back-up of every session. With Advanced Back-up option, software takes back-up of every session with date and time stamp added in the  file name. The Back-up file is created in the Backup->Year->Month->Date (Date folder inside the Month folder inside the year folder). The Advantage of advanced backup option is allowing user to create different restore points and also UNDO the last bulk invoice generation, deletion or data-entry in the given session by restoring the database of particular restore point.

In fact, we strongly recommend to take back-up of entire ArtRM folder on CD, every month and Back-up of Database on daily basis to Pen-Drive or CD-Drive.

Downloading Reports:

Similarly, you can also download the Reports.zip for new updated reports. Again make sure you take back-up of your reports folder, because it may be possible that we might change reports to suit your requirement, or our engineer might have done some changes to reports on-site at your office and if you download the reports from the net it may so happen that those changes which were done specifically for you may get overwritten with the download, therefore it is strongly recommended to take back-up of Reports folder also.
