Btrieve 12 Downloads and Documentation

Migrating Btrieve to PSQL: It's Really Easy.

If you have a Btrieve application, it's really simple to migrate to PSQL. All file formats from Btrieve 6.15 and later are supported in PSQL, so testing your application is as simple as downloading a trial version, installing the database and then testing the application. And if you are running prior versions of Btrieve, there's even a step by step guide in the whitepaper Upgrading Btrieve 6.15 to Actian PSQL to help you rebuild your files.

Some great reasons to migrate to PSQL are:  

  • Your application will run on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012
  • Native 64-bit platform support
  • Support for multi-core
  • VM and Hypervisor support
  • Improved Security

In the tradition of Btrieve, each successive release of PSQL drives down total-cost-of-ownership. Dynamic settings, troubleshooting utilities and high reliability combine to keep the low total-cost-of-ownership, not only in initial purchase costs, but also in terms of deployment and ongoing maintenance.
