Concerns about upgrading to TLC32

. What ITC product would be the least trouble to switch my current database over?
Answer -Any TLC32 product. If you are currently using the TLC Legacy version. Upgrading to TLC32 will also bring you up to Revision Level 2.7.2 and add New Command Screens to the look and feel. TLC32 will operate the same as your Legacy version while adding new screen controls.
2. Will it be multi-user?
Answer - YES. It will provide the same number of users you have now.
3. What is involved in moving the tool database? P.S. Detailed Explanations are in previous Blogs posted to this site.
Answer - First, error check all your tool database files with the TLCFIX or FILEFIX utility on your system. If you have no errors, pick the FILEDUMP utility and dump each file in the database to a TXT file. For example, dump the toolid.IDX & .DAT file to a file named TOOLIDS.TXT. Move those (.TXT) files to your Windows network and use the FILELOAD Utility in your new TLC32 software to load the tool database. You will have all the information from your Legacy system now available in the TLC32 system

Answer - Depending on TLC32 product -$450 plus $45 per additional users. You might want to consider unlimited users or a site license - $750 for current customers.
5. Before we upgrade is there a trial version we can test with?
Answer - YES. To test against your current working tool database you must complete the conversion as explained in ANSWER 3 above.
Any TLC Legacy tool management product can be upgraded to the new TLC32 version. The TLC Legacy database will easily upgrade to TLC32 database format.
