    Default Upgrading From v6 to v8

    I am supporting a user with Alpha 4 v6 and the system is running Win98SE. I am upgrading the system to WinXP Pro.

    Will v6 run on XPP or is an upgrade to v7 necessary?

    There's a post on 07-09-2003 from Gedi Margaitis of Alpha Software that says:

    "There's a problem with V6 running under either WIN 2000 or WIN XP; it can destroy your database under certain conditions. Alpha came out with Version 7 and Version 8 to correct the problem."

    As far as I know, you'll have to upgrade to V8 -- I don't think V7 is offered any more.

    Thanx Howard,

    I read that post but was looking to upgrade from A4 v6 to A4 v8.

    In the installation docs, it mentioned that to upgrade to v8, the installation will look for a previous folder for v7 but makes no mention regarding options for going from v6 to v8.

    I was hoping to find someone who has made this transition to learn of any problems if any.

    Thanx again, hope you had a good turkey day.

    Greg

    Greg:

    To UPGRADE to Version 8, you must have Version 7! Therefore, you need to purchase a New User version of Version 8.

    Thanx again Howard.

    I guess it's time my client took their first baby step into the 21 Century!

    Appreciate your replies.

    You can upgrade directly to V8. You do not need V7.
