    Click No to cancel the opening of the Group until a backup has been taken (see caution below).

    Click OK to cancel the opening of the Group until it has been upgraded through DriveWorks Pro Server.

    Please see DriveWorks Pro Server Upgrade for more information.

Backup the Group

Upgraded Groups cannot be rolled back to earlier versions of DriveWorks.

We recommend taking a backup of your Group(s) before opening in DriveWorks 18 SP1. please see the following for more information:

Data Grid Control End of Life

DriveWorks v10 introduced the Data Table control as a successor to the Data Grid control.

This offered the same functionality with enhanced customization of the behavior and appearance.

To allow us to continue to take advantage of modern technology to deliver improved functionality and the best possible user experience across all of our products, we have decided to end support for the Data Grid control.

DriveWorks 18 will be the last version the Data Grid control is fully supported.
