September 2007



Effective September 15, 2007, Revelation Software has announced that it will no longer support any versions of Revelation or Advanced Revelation on Vista workstations, whether running in standalone mode or as part of a network.

Based upon feedback from our clients, our in-house testing, and anecdotal reports from the field, there appear to be too many issues with Vista to allow Revelation or Advanced Revelation applications to run reliably.  We are saddened by this; these products represent a majority of Revelation's twenty-five year history, and we truly enjoy working with them. 

However, we had anticipated issues with Vista based upon our beta testing, and we developed the Arev32 product as a viable, affordable, and supported upgrade path.  Arev32 will run on Windows 2000, XP Professional, and Vista; has no 64K limit; and will work with all currently available hardware.  It will be maintained and supported for the foreseeable future.

Please contact your local sales representative for information on upgrading to Arev32.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter.




We are pleased to announce that we have added a video tutorial section to our web site.  Our initial plan is to cover a topic in two steps:

  1. A theoretical discussion with an instructor and a whiteboard.
  2. Screen captures showing a 'How To' approach.

Topics covered to date include: Arev32 Conversion Wizard; Commuter Modules; Context Menus; Drag and Drop; and the U2 Connector.
