RES 3700 - Command line database control for Micros RES 3700 POS.

A little known fact is that Micros RES 3700 POS comes with a nifty little command line tool which lets you replicate the functionality of the Micros Control Panel.

The tool is called CLCONTROL and is located in D:\Micros\Res\Pos\Bin

open the command prompt and type CLCONTROL /? and it will display the below help on how to use it.
It is fairly straight forward and if you don't understand it then you should'nt be using it.

There is also a log file for the tool kept in D:\Micros\Res\Pos\Etc called CLCONTROL_SERVERNAME.log
