The Suite will no longer install or upgrade using the Sybase Database including personal editions. As we add new functionality to the Suite solution, we have found it necessary to discontinue development compatible with the Sybase Database Engine. Because the environment details vary for every company, we offer personalized services to help in this transition process. Our experiences with hundreds of customers allow us to share our expertise with you. Our customers have found this saves them many hours of frustration when missing something that could affect their system in the future. If you have any questions about this announcement, please don't hesitate to contact Waypoint's Technical Support Department at support@waypointglobal.com.

Waypoint Global announces the end of support for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 in the Suite releases starting with V4.00.
