Latest florists directories are available from flowerSoft’s Dropbox.  The file is called florist.exe and should be placed in your FSROOT folder.
After doing this, you can go into flowerSoft’s Manager’s Menu and follow these steps…

IFD17

Select the U – Utilities option

IFD16

Select F – Florist Database

IFD15

Select I – Install Florist Directories

IFD14

If you want to save your existing Favorite, Preferred, Exclude from Searches and Do Not Fill For settings, run the S – Save F/P/E/D Markings before you install the new directories.

IFD13

Select L- Install Latest Directories

IFD12

The first thing flowerSoft will do is tell the location where the florist.exe should be located.
Please note that the location shown on the screen shot above is the location where the florist.exe file should be located in my system, not necessarily yours.
With the exception of the FSROOT portion, your setting may be completely different from mine.

Because flowerSoft can be installed just about anywhere in a computer system, the location shown on the screen shot above may be different than what the screen will show on yours when you select the option.
N:\FSSILVER\FSROOT, N:\FSROOT, C:\FSUS\FSROOT, N:\Program Data\FSSILVER\FSROOT, C:\FSROOT, F:\FSSILVER\FSROOT are all valid locations.
The location shown on your screen is the correct location for your system and you should place the florist.exe file there.

Place the florist.exe file in the location your screen shows which, again, is not necessarily the same location show on the screen shot above.

Once you’ve done this, answer “Y” to the “Did you download the file to that location? (y/N) ” prompt.

IFD11

After you answer “Y” to the first prompt, flowerSoft will tell you where you should tell the installation program to install the florist directories.

IFD10

Before continuing, flowerSoft  will first give you a warning about saving your preferred settings.
If you haven’t done so and you want to save them, answer “N” to the prompt about continuing with the installation.
If you have already saved your preferred settings or you do not want to save them, answer “Y” to the prompt.

IFD09

flowerSoft will tell you that it will start the installation.

IFD08

This is the first screen the install program will display.
Make sure it says flowerSoft Silver Databases SEP-DEC 2013If it does not, you did not place the florist.exe file in the correct location.

The next few screen shots are self-explanatory

IFD07 IFD06 IFD05 IFD04 IFD03 IFD02 IFD01

Once it has completed the installation, the program will display the screen above and wait for you to click on the button.

The latest florist directories should now be installed in your system.
