Switching From Web-based GADS Software to GADS Open Source

by ronfluegge 8. November 2019 15:09

If you are a smaller generating company (e.g., single plant site, municipal, etc) and currently run web-based GADS reporting software such as MicroGADS Gold, you might be doing so because you don't have an IT department to support installing software or running something like SQL Server or Oracle ... as a result you're running a vendor's software on their web servers.

If you need or want to switch to GADS Open Source, we have a solution for you.

Our software can also use the Microsoft Access that is a part of Microsoft Office, which you probably already use.

We can provide at no cost installation support and data migration to install everything needed on a desktop/laptop or shared drive ... everything runs in-house; no vendor costs.

Feel free to contact us at any time to explore how we can be of assistance.

All good things must come to an end, even Windows 7. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. But you can keep the good times rolling by moving to Windows 10.

The GADS OS software versions prior to 2019 required .NET Framework 4.5.2 or higher. The release of .NET Framework 4.5.2 was announced on 5 May 2014.

Beginning with versions 19.x.x.x, the GADS OS software will require .NET Framework 4.6.1 or higher.  The release of .NET Framework 4.6.1 was announced on 30 November 2015. This version requires Windows 7 SP1 or later.
