Our UDA components can only provide connection to a
.mdb file if it is hosted on a Windows operating system with a full Access install.
Yes. We do not build components for installation on OS/400.
To establish connectivity to DB2 on OS/400, you can install our DB2-specific components (Single-Tier "Lite" Edition ODBC Driver or Multi-Tier "Enterprise" Edition Database Agent) on any supported operating system that has a functional copy of DB2 client networking (currently and historically called "DB2 Connect").
At the time of writing, we have Multi-Tier, Single-Tier (Lite), and Single-Tier (Express) drivers that connect to 32-bit Oracle 10i on Windows x86_64. We have Single-Tier (Express) drivers for 64-bit Oracle DBMS on Windows x86_64. Other driver formats are planned.
Yes! For best results, we recommend that you update to Progress 9.1E04 or later.
We provide 32-bit and 64-bit components built with AIX 5.2 and AIX 5.3. All of these are binary compatible with AIX 6.x and 7.x.
Our 32-bit builds for AIX 4.x are also binary compatible with AIX 5.x, AIX 6.x, and AIX 7.x.
Do you support Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)? Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)? Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)? Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)?
We build and brand components for Leopard which are fully compatible with all later versions to date, through Mac OS X 10.8.2.
Our builds for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) may also be used with Mac OS X 10.5, should a Leopard-specific build not be immediately available.
We license components by physical core. Software hosted on a machine with a single quad-core CPU, or with two dual-core CPUs, or four single-core CPUs, would require a 4 core license.
Yes. You can purchase permanent license keys using our online Shopcart. The Shopcart will email the keys to you. You will receive a 15 day temporary key when you first download our software. A second, 15 day key will be stored in your ODS DAV repository.
Our evaluation period lasts 15 days.
Our smallest Multi-Tier license supports up to 5 total concurrent database sessions, from up to 5 concurrent client hosts.
You can deploy two commercial or evaluation licenses from different releases on the same machine.
On Unix be sure to set your
OPL_LICENSE_DIR variable to point to the correct directory location before starting any service associated with our components.
If you are deploying Release 6.x+ on the same host as a legacy release, be sure to start all services associated with the legacy installations, before you start any services associated with Release 6.x.
Use our HTTP-based tools to detect the license in use.
Our support team does not write start-up scripts for products in the Product Portfolio. Start-up scripts must be carefully crafted and customized to guarantee proper functionality in the target environment. Professional Services can write such start-up scripts for a fee. Product Support can provide a template which customers and evaluators may modify for their own environments.
We cannot enable SQL-89/4GL connectivity to Progress OpenEdge 10.0A or later. This is due to limitations in the Progress Development libraries that we use to build Progress agents and drivers.
SQL-92 connections to OpenEdge 10.0 and later are fully supported.
This is simply a matter of configuring the environment and
.ini files associated with our products.
Contact Product Support for additional guidance.
