Bart, I have to agree with everything you stated. At one point in time I had a number of SQL calls in a web app that had some heavy use. The day I rolled out the SQL code I had to roll it back to 4D Query code because performance was so bad the site became unusable. At this point in time I

4D World Tour - Get off the fence

I highly recommend going to the 4D world tour. There is always at least 1 tidbit that you walk away from events like this that makes the whole trip worthwhile and JPR and Add are both fantastic presenters with tons of valuable content. So if you are on the fence, get off the fence and sign

OK, so it's Friday afternoon and I've got a few moments while I sup on a cold bevvy. David & I kind of got the fervour about CALL FORM/WORKER at the same time and this is one of the things about them that really captured our imagination. We are using CALL FORM and CALL WORKER to automate unit

2017-02-22 Thread Justin Leavens via 4D_Tech
I have a customer site with a mix of Windows machines and I need to get the 4D v15.4 app for use in client mode on to each machine. This is not a merged server/client. What's the best way to get the 4D app installed on each machine? The 32-bit installer seems to want to install all of 4D
