I downloaded the PROSTORES STORE MONITOR, and when I try to run it to see what type of activity is being done, I am not able to run it. All it ask if I would allow PRO STORE STORE MONITOR to make changes to my computer, there is no way of running this tool to view stats....

Hi ESTHER4477,

The store monitor does not work in storefront, I apologize about that.

For analytics, I'd suggest using Google Analytics.

Thank you,

Hello Ester4477,

This is the information form Prostore's Knowledge Base. The store monitoring tool was not suppose to function like Google Analytics. Its more of a way for the store owner to monitor orders and customer registration. See the reference below.

"The ProStores Store Monitor is a tool that tracks activity in your store, without you having to log on to the store administration. It works as a Windows System Tray tool, running continuously when you're logged onto your computer. As long as you have an active internet connection, it periodically checks to see if any new customers have registered with your store or if there have been any new orders, and then alerts you. Store Monitor is only available for the Windows operating system. Some security programs may prevent the application from installing or operating."

I would suggest going to Prostores and accessing their knowledge base. Even though their program version is Higher then the one currently used by Homestead, it has a wealth of information to draw from when designing and coding the system if needed. Hope that helps.
