As database engines continue to grow and evolve, new features and performance optimizations become available. The 2009r1 release of Advantage makes use of some of these new features that may not be available with a SQL 2000 database.
In April 2008, Microsoft retired the mainstream support for SQL 2000 on many of its service pack levels. For more information on the Microsoft product life cycles, please see the Microsoft Support site.
A full listing of the minimum system requirement for the 2009r1 Release
can be found in the Release Notes.
If you are planning on upgrading to a 2009 release, use SQL 2000 or an earlier revision, and do not plan to upgrade your revision of SQL, please give your Account Manager a call to discuss further.
