Dear Davide,I fully understand your need to defend SSA - I worked in Frimley (UK) for 4 years - but how about a little honesty here...
You only need to access the OGS site and look at the date difference between a BMR being available for AS400 and Unix in order to realize where the resources are allocated!!!
To make it clear to everybody (working from my memory):SSA generated a version of BPCS that ran on Windows (NT) with an Informix database. Actually is was exactly the same as the Unix version for Informix - so no magic there...
SSA used to implement all BMRs from Vxx automatically into all supported versions and on all supported platforms. Now this is only done if someone on Vyy/platformxx escalates the issue.
As SSA has - from ERP LX (BPCS V8.3) - given up using ASSET they have effectively scrapped the dream of being "multi-platform" and we are all expected to use AS400/ISeries/P5.
So - as SSA are implementing all new BMRs by manually changing the RPG code generated by ASSET - you can easily estimate the expected time for a BMR to be fixed on your V6.1.00...
Kind regards Bent Nielsen

Also it is for VERY SMALL firms, in terms of # of users practical* BPCS has a version that runs on some versions of UNIX, that gets more support than the Windows version but not as much as the AS/400 iSeries version, so they may have more problems. There are also some difficulties intercommunicating on this list, since the interfaces are so different* 99% of the companies using BPCS do so on AS/400/iSeries, and that's wherethe support and enhancements mainly isIf you are seriously interested in having an ERP in the Windows OS, you are better off going with a competitor of SSA whose primary product focus is tosupport their Windows based ERP.Hi All, Do we have a windows version of BPCS that runs on an Intel box?
