    Default UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 2000

    I HAVE BEEN USING ALPHA4V6 FOR MANY YEARS ON A SMALL OFFICE NETWORK USING WINDOWS 98SE(PEER-TO-PEER)QUITE SUCCESSFULLY. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF I'LL EXPERIENCE ANY PROBLEMS IF I UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 2000? I WAS TOLD THAT WINDOWS XP WOULD PROBABLY BE A PROBLEM.

    HELP !!!

    Howard;
    I believe the problems associated with A4 pre v7 on Win XP apply equally to Win 2000.

    You'll have to upgrade to A4V8 or you risk corrupting your database.

    With the upgrade, you should have no trouble with using anything you've created and are running with A4V6. One thing you do want to watch, especially if you use macros to print specific reports, is to stay with the DOS printer drivers at least initially. While the window printer drivers works very well, window printers do not have the "End of Session" screen, so the extra "F10" that you may be using with your print macro may "throw off" your macro.

    BTW, keep your A4V6 manual as there is no new manual for V8.

    Also, you might want download "What's new in Version 8". You also should get "What's new in Version 7". Trust me, you should get both and read them thoroughly.

    If you've upgraded A4 before, you should have no other problem. I suggest, if you have the choice, update A4 while you are still running Windows 98. Get everthing back to normal here first and then move to Windows 2000.

    For more info, go to the A4 Version 7 & 8 message board.
