  • The following information is important to all Windows Dataspeed users, running MS SQL Server.
  • We have recently discovered that MS SQL 2012 is NOT compatible with the current version of Dataspeed Windows software. There are a large number of triggers in the database and VB codes in our programs which, with the MS SQL 2012 Engine, are no longer compatible.
  • We therefore strongly advise against updating your MS SQL server to 2012 or you will experience errors (and the program will not work properly). If you do wish to upgrade to 2012, you will need to contact for a quote to have your database and program(s) updated BEFORE you upgrade your server.
