fmPreferences - Addons Management

To find out if Store Manager will work with your store you can perform a Database Compatibility check (Tools menu). Your store DB will be compared with the standard CRE Loaded (osCommerce or Zen Cart) one and the results will be shown in a dialog window. You'll be able to see whether there are any critical errors or warnings. Also by clicking Advanced button you'll see a standard CRE Loaded Database to have a better understanding of why the warnings appeared.

This compatibility check also may be useful for you if you wish to install some third-party solutions on your store, but you are not sure whether they work will or not.

The warnings you may see are more for advanced users and developers. Please disregard those if you didn't see any errors.

If you are getting errors please check the database fields and fix these errors if possible (and you know how to do this).

Add-ons were designed to automate and improve typical tasks/operations made by store owners or managers. There are no files to download and update, like it used to be before, everything required for extended functionality already exists in main application. If plugin is not registered, it'll work in DEMO mode - you can do everything with it, but you will not be able to post actual changes to your database. In order to unlock its functionality you have to purchase an appropriate license and register the extension. Add-on should be registered in the same way as software - using first name and last name. See Store Manager support regarding registration and possible problems. You can reset addon license in the same way as main software's license.

Just open "Preferences" and activate "Addons" page to see add-on information.
