2012 WORKS DVD Contents

As the EOY CD is now being published via the web, rather than a hard CD, a few of you have asked me about the contents of the latest disk.  Having now downloaded my copy and having created the disk, I am pleased to detail the disks contents.

The disk is divided up into seven navigable sections and I’ll itemise each one in bullet form below.

  1. Home
    • A page of text from Revelation Software
  2. OpenInsight 9.3.2
    • A copy of the OpenInsight 9.3.2 Full Install

  7. Video Tutorials – Links to various videos on http://www.revelation.com
    • OpenInsight – Links to my OI QSG Series of videos
    • U2 – Links to the U2 Connector video
    • ARev32 – Links to the ARev32 Conversion Wizard videos (Part 1 and Part 2)
    • Universal Driver – Installing the Universal Driver 4.0
    • CTO – Importing Pick based applications into OpenInsight
    • OpenInsight Tech – A number of videos covering:
      1. OpenInsight’s Source Code Management

      3. Enhanced TCL for OpenInsight 9.2
      4. OpenInsight’s OEngine Server
      5. Efficient Basic+ Coding for OpenInsight
      6. Drag and Drop
      7. Context Menus

    • SQL – A demonstration of OpenInsight’s SQL connector Technology
    • D3 – Requirements and Setup Demonstration

So, quite a host of good resources for any OpenInsight developer to have available to them.  The download is pretty large 800Mb but I think that it is a useful download to have if you are working with and supporting OpenInsight systems.

  1. OK, so all that talk about videos has prompted a suggestion that I create a video on the EOY DVD. That has been created and it is rendering as i type this comment. Watch for it coming VERY soon.
