Technical Data
This data is provided for troubleshooting purposes.

The Switch.ini path must be in the same folder as the digirex.exe executable. The bridge sends patient data from Open Dental to the specified Switch.ini file.  Example file:

[Patient]
ID=17
Gender=Male
First=Mickey
Last=Mouse
Year=2008
Month=2
Day=24
[Dentist]
ID=doc1
Password=digirex

Open Dental then launches Apixia and the Apixia application reads the Switch.ini file to figure out which patient to load.

Open Dental always sends "digirex" as the dentist password and sends the provider abbreviation as the dentist ID. The DigirexServer application is where you can add users for Apixia. The Dr.ID must match the provider abbreviation in Open Dental and all passwords must be "digirex". 

If Apixia users were not setup properly, you will see the following error message for certain providers when bridging, then Apixia will freeze:
