WinQS Version 5.9.0.6 is NOW available

The latest version of WinQS contains the following new features/enhancements as a result of all of our Clients' input.


CONVERTING Projects to WinQS-SQL

During the past six months, WinQS has been undergoing a MAJOR re-write. WinQS was developed back in 1996 when most clients ONLY had Windows for WorkGroups (Windows 3.1). At that stage the best database option to use was a Paradox database. This has become outdated (even though more than 2000 WinQS clients still successfully use it.) As part of the ongoing development and improvement of WinQS, we have implemented a whole NEW database behind the familiar WinQS screens/forms. This modern database is a true 32bit database and has better multi-user /networking capabilities.

What does this mean to YOU - the WinQS user?
The WinQS interface with you, the User will not change significantly. That is, the way you work will not be impacted and the database change will not be obvious to you.

However, there will be a significant improvement in speed and reliability, particularly in a networking environment.

When will the Conversion happen?
It is anticipated that the Sequel version will be released before the end of 2004

How will the Conversion happen?
In preparation for the move to WinQS-SQL we have included in WinQS Version 5.9 a SINGLE click convert facility to move your whole project into the NEW WinQS-SQL version.
