Obsolete White Papers

By: Bill Bach

Goldstar Software has been providing support to the PSQL community since 1997. At times, older white papers may be completely irrelevant in the current product line, though this information can still be extremely valuable to someone stuck on an older release of Btrieve, Pervasive.SQL, Pervasive PSQL, and Actian PSQL. As newer white papers are added to our other pages, any obsolete versions are migrated here, just in case you might need the old content while maintaining and troubleshooting your database.

PDF Setting up the Workgroup Engine as a Service
If you use the Pervasive.SQL Workgroup Engine on a server and do not log into the server every day, then you will need to configure the database engine to start as a service. This paper explains how to configure this so that the WGE works without logging in. (Updated July 2010)
