    Default Alpha Four version 2 upgrade

    I have inherited a legacy multi-user system written in Alpha Four version 2. This system is currently running on a Windows for Workgroup peer to peer network. My first task is to convert the hardware to more modern platform (Windows 95, 98).

    My first question is: What version do I require? Alpha Four version 6 ? Will there be any work involved in the upgrade/migration?

    Unfortuneately, I have zero experience with Alpha Software but my professional background is database application development.

    Thank-you,

    Paul,

    A4V2 will run on 95/98. The last DOS version was A4V6, and it's still
    for sale on this site. The biggest thing you have to worry about when
    you're upgrading is printers, because A4 does not use USB ports, and
    Alpha is not writing new printer drivers. This board is great for
    workarounds, though.
