Omega - Support Information

Page Updated: 28-6-16

Operating System Support - Windows 8.x

This section of the site is concerned with the running of Omega, and its accompanying applications, under Windows 8 and 8.1 and any compatibility issues that have been discovered.

No testing of Omega, WIPC or accompanying utilities has been done under Windows 8 or 8.1. No testing is planned since no supported sites are known to be running Windows 8.x with Omega.

The main changes between 7 and 8.x appear to be GUI-related and since Omega is known to work with Windows 10, which shares much of the GUI changes from 7, it is likely that the application will run. However, this cannot be guaranteed at this point in time. Likewise, WIPC should work as well as it does on Windows 7, but only on the 32-bit edition of Windows 8.x since 16-bit applications cannot be run directly on 64-bit editions.

The print server, archiver and datalink utilities may also still work.

Any feedback from Omega sites regarding Windows 8.x compatibility is welcome.

Note that Windows 8.x has only been officially tested and supported by Pervasive/Actian with Pervasive.SQL 11.x and Actian PSQL 12.
