Inasmuch Microsoft Server 2012 and 2012 R2 will no longer be supported after October 10, 2023 (no more security updates being the primary concern), users are starting to plan migrations to Server 2019 or Server 2022. These migrations will not require any program updates from us (for Advanced Accounting, for example) but users that are running the Actian Pervasive (PSQL) 11.3 (SP3) release on those systems may have to upgrade to a newer version.
Goldstar Software, who specializes in providing Pervasive (and later referred to as Actian Pervasive and now as Actian Zen) software has recently published some very helpful charts that includes officially supported engines on various operating systems:
See the second chart with the subtitle, "Supported Operating Systems by Actian Zen/PSQL Product Versions."
So while v11.3 might work on say 2019 Server, only v13 (and v14 and v15) are officially supported. And for Server 2022, only v15 supports that operating system.
When upgrading to v15, there are some discounts (at least for a while) are available for users of older versions. See:
and scroll down to "Actian Zen v15 Enterprise Server Upgrades From PSQL v13 or Older (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST)."
Because of their technical expertise and the fact that they focus solely on "Btrieve" products, we do recommend that users obtain pre-sale information and product updates from Goldstar.
When migrating to a different server without purchasing an upgrade and with the intention of using the existing license on the newer server, the older installation has to be deauthorized.
For testing and for use in some migration situations, a 30-day v15 trial version is available.
