Both the computer and the Bailine dongle contains a clock
device. When the Bailine program is started the program compares
the computer and dongle time and date and if the difference
is significant the operator will be prompted to verify the
Changing the current date
The program's date can be changed through the menu 'Bailine:
Current Date'. This menu can only be used while there is no
clients open. Close any open clients before changing the date
Changing the computer's date works the same as changing the
Bailine program's current date.
The computer contains a battery to maintain the clock. On
old computers this battery may eventually go flat, and in
particular if the computer has been stored without power for
longer amounts of time.
In that case the date will be reset to a default date whenever
the computer is restarted.
On most computers the clock battery can be replaced. Some
computers may need to have the battery soldered in and out.
If that is the case the computer is probably so old that it
should be replaced.
With certain dongle problems the program may warn about the
date even though the date is correct. In that case it is safe
to not change the date.
Contact HQ to get the dongle repaired or replaced.
