Hi Ravi,

I’m running 64-bit windows server 2008 with IIS 7 and PHP, MySQL etc. Instead of a Cron job, I’d need to use windows scheduler (or setup a scheduled task in the ColdFusion administrator…hehe). My question is have you seen any issues with installing your software on 64-bit windows server 2008 with IIS 7?

DAP has never been tested on a Windows server. DAP relies on your web site having these features:

* .htaccess support
* PHP 5 / MySQL4
* PDO for MySQL

Using Win Scheduler instead of Cron is totally fine. The main thing is for your site to support the above requirements.

If your site does support this, then it’s certainly worth a shot.

Hello, I’m interested in the unlimited license DAP.

Since I will be using DA on more than 1 domain, does DAP still need to be installed on each domain – or can it run from one central location (a feature I would LOVE!)

Yes, you can run DAP from one central location.

Hey Ravi, I just wanted to stop in and tell you that your product support is phenomenal. It’s almost as if you thought of EVERYTHING, thanks!
