    Default Upgrading A4 V2 To V8

    I am a newbie and need some advice about upgrading Alpha 4 v2.0 to V8. We are currently running the application on Windows 98. Ideally I want to put it on a PC that is running XP Pro and network it back to a Win98 PC. What steps must I take to get it converted from V2 to V8 and then network the 2 computers? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    V2 is upward compatible. Therefore, V8 will open the same files that you've been using with V2. All the forms, reports...etc. will be there.

    To network it back to the WIN/98 pc, install V8 on the WIN/XP pc and map a drive to the WIN/98 pc. Then, open any file using the mapped letter.

    Thank you for your help. I already installed A4V8 and got it working. I just need to get the network connection working.

    Again thanks,
