What version of the E2V system do I have?

As of this writing, there are two live, active versions of the E2V system in use. They are called “version 2” and “version 3.”

You can tell which version you have in two very simple ways:

  1. If your Inventory Server is white, you’re on version 2. If it’s black, you’re on version 3.
  2. If your vendor scripts are called “[E2V] Vendor 2.x” then you’re on version 2. If they’re called “[E2V-3] Vendor 3.x” then you’re on version 3. (Note that the “x” in both cases will actually be a number)

About Version Numbers

Version numbers in software operate a little differently than normal numbers. For example, you might think that version “2.9” is greater than version “2.16” if you view the numbers as traditional fractions. However, version numbers are typically presented in the format “major.minor” where 2.16 is a later version than 2.9, because the number “16” comes after the number “9.” In other words, don’t view them as decimals/fractions, view each number as a whole number, separated by a “.” character.

Admin Website URLS

If you’re on version 2, your admin site is located here: http://www.e2-designs.com/e2v/owners/

If you’re on version 3, your admin site is here:  http://www.e2-designs.com/e2v-3/owners/

There are a few things to note about these versions and sites:

  • All your sales data, whether you’re on 2 or 3, goes to the same place. if you upgrade to 3 from 2, you’re still accessing the same sales data.
  • Since both websites access the same sales data, many functions can be performed on either site. However, due to changes in version 3, some of the version 2 site’s functions will have no effect. Specifically, the store-wide sale feature, and anything having to do with split proceeds has moved in-world.
