17 June 2008

MILWAUKEE – June 18, 2008 – TEKLYNX® International, the world’s leading developer of software products for the AIDC marketplace, today introduced BACKTRACK® 6.0 – the latest version of its comprehensive asset and inventory tracking software system. The new version adds several capabilities, including Windows Vista support and improved database conversions.
Enhancements include:

  • Windows Vista 32-bit compatibility
  • Improved database conversion process – A redesigned BACKTRACK restore process speeds up the restoration of large-size backups on non-FoxPro databases, improves reliability, and displays a progress bar that shows the percentage of completion.
  • Check-out preauthorization – BACKTRACK now verifies to see if a user has items checked out before the system allows the user to continue checking out additional items. It also notifies the user of the overdue items.
  • Ability to store label files in user-defined directories – Designers now have the ability to choose the directory where a label file will be stored when a new label is created.
  • Ability to choose an existing mapped network drive for network installation
BACKTRACK supports Microsoft Visual FoxPro, Microsoft SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005, SQL Express 2005 and Microsoft Access databases. BACKTRACK continues to support legacy DOS-based portable data terminals (PDTs) and adds support for Windows mobile-based devices from Compsee, Denso, Opticon, Symbol and others. A complete list of supported devices is available at: www.teklynx.com/backtrack.
