1. Open “Card personalization Configuration”.
You can find this software by accessing the “Access Professional Edition” folder in the start menu. See figure 1.
If unable to find in the start menu, this is located in the folder “C:\BOSCH\Access Professional Edition\CP\bin\SfmCfgApp.exe”, (unless non-default paths and folder names are chosen during installation). See figure 2.

3. Create a print channel.
Type the print channel desired name and click the button to the left.
Once the print channel is created, the installed printers at this PC will populate below.

6. Restart the computer.
APE logviewer repeatedly shows the message No. 542: “SQL-Server-Database online”, even when the SQL-Database is deactivated in the configurator.
One possible solution would be the following:
Manually modify the Active.acf file
Before starting this process make sure the APE Configurator and Logviewer are closed.
Create a backup of the Active.acf file. This file is located in the folder C:\BOSCH\Access Professional Edition\PE\Data\Cfg, (unless non-default paths and folder names are chosen during installation).
Open the Active.acf file with a Notepad.
Find the “sql server database” line and set activated to 0. “Activated=0” (see figure 1).
Save the changes
Restart BOSCH APE Service
