Have a couple questions as we prepare for IT upgrade I want to make sure that everything we purchase is going to be compatible with the new hardware.
1) When is v17 scheduled to be released?
2) Is the windows server 2016 supported on either v16 or will it be on v17?
3) With v17 is everyone eligible for the new update?
4) Do you have specs or min requirements for v17?
Solved! Go to Solution.
juriz or ayman can you provide an input on this?
Also, just an FYI callton and gdaurity the What's New Video for v17.0 is now available in the Carestream Dental Institute and here www.carestreamdental.com/SDWhatsNew. The video may not answer these specific questions but gives an overview of what is in v17.
I will answer what I know so far
No exact release date was communicated down to use yet
Windows server 2016 is not supported /tested on V16 - I don’t know about V17 yet
Everyone should be able to get V 17 if their computers and network meet the minimum requirements that is not released yet
Here it is, April of 2018, and Server 2016 still isn't supported. I recently upgraded a PracticeWorks server from Server 2008 to Server 2016. Everything seems to work fine on the server but the clients perform various functions very slowly. Saving x-rays or even simply running a small report take forever. I don't know if there's a simple fix or not but Carestream says server 2016 isn't supported. I think that is unacceptable considering the last version they support is from 2012 and it is 2018 right now. Why would I want to install Server 2012 when I plan on keeping the new server in place for at least 4 to 6 years? If I use Server 2012, it would be in use in the year 2022 up until 2024. With all the security issues nowadays that are being fixed constantly with updates, I'm not going to intentionally install an operating system that I know will be woefully out-of-date within a couple years.
Anyone wanting to be added to the Prioritized ship list, please let me know by putting your office name and number below.
Thanks! I look forward to hearing how everyone likes it!
