Wd database update
« on: October 28, 2017, 07:39:40 AM »
Hi Brian,
I was wondering if at some stage (if it's worth it) it is possible to update the database program to be compatible with later versions of windows i.e windows 10 please?

Regards

Guru

Yes, i have and will have a tinker with it tonight. Looks straight forward in WD. Thought there may have been a tip or two to remember when setting up. Thanks for your prompt response.
