Installing on a Windows Server

VRP can optionally be installed on a Local Windows Server or a Cloud Windows Server for remote access and multi-user use (depending on which VRP license is purchased). If you do not have your own local Windows Server, you can use a cloud Windows Server (such as: or

Installing VRP on a Windows Server using Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) provides the best option for remote access and multi-user use, since access to the data will be much faster than installing VRP on your Local Network PC. This is because the data is not passed through the local network and router. Only screen refreshes and keyboard/mouse actions are passed through when connecting to a Windows Server using a Remote Desktop Connection.

If you only need Remote Access for Single-user use

VRP can also be installed on a cloud Windows Desktop service (such as: This allows a single user access at a given time from any location. This service cost much less than a Windows Server while still providing remote access. However, it is limited to a single user at a time.

A Remote Desktop shortcut is required on each PC

Connecting to a Windows Server (or a remote Windows Desktop) requires a “Remote Desktop Connection” (RDC) shortcut. In the RDC’s “Edit” menu (via right-click on the shortcut), you specify the connection details and the “Local Resources” you wish to use (such as: Printers and Clipboard).

Windows Server requires Experience to set up

We recommend Kamatera or TrappTechnology (above) because they offer support and setup assistance. (Note: In Kamatera you must select this option when purchasing).

If you have your own Windows server or someone familiar with Windows Server then you can set up the server and connections yourself. Also note, that Windows Server requires purchasing Client Access Licenses (CAL’s) depending how many users you have.

Installing the Application

Installing VRP on a Windows Server is the same as installing it on your PC. However, you only need to install it once. Note: You will need to provide “Full Control” privilege to the following folders after installing the VRP software:

  • The folder containing the Vrpdata folder. The default (when installing VRP) is “C:\Data\“.
  • The “C:\Temp\” folder.

At least One User should have Admin privilege

In order to stay current with future software updates, at least one user should have Admin rights on the server. If using TrappTechnology, they normally install VRP for you. So be sure to relay which user should have Admin rights so that user can update the VRP software as needed.


Windows Server is used by many businesses to provide access to their business applications. If your VRP database is getting large and slow on your local network, then this is the best option. It also allows you to enable remote access if needed.
