Btrieve 12 Highlights
- Btrieve 6.15 Compatible
Btrieve 12 is file format and API compatible with Btrieve 6.15. Your Btrieve 6.15 application can run with no changes on Btrieve 12. No need to recompile code or rebuild file formats (unless you are currently writing to 5.x files - Btrieve 12 writes to only 6.x files).
- Current Windows OS Support
Support for all of the latest Windows operating systems from Vista to Windows 10.
- New Features
Auto reconnect, Btrieve Control Center, improved concurrent file use, wire encryption, centralized logging online help and documentation, updated utilities and a lot more.

Btrieve 12 Limited Distribution License
Btrieve 12 is available for purchase only in the form of a Limited Distribution License (LDL), which allows the license holder to make and distribute copies of Btrieve 12 as part of their application. Think of it like a mini-OEM agreement.
Who: Btrieve 12 LDL's are for software developers (ISV's, OEM's or large end users) currently using Btrieve 6.15 and plan to migrate to Btrieve 12.
What: The Btrieve 12 LDL entitles the license holder to distribute copies of Btrieve 12 with their application(s) in support of up to 1000 users. This can be in 1000 single-user copies, 1 thousand-user copy or any combination in between.
How: Btrieve 12 Limited Distribution Licenses can be purchased either directly from Actian or from an Actian Distribution Partner. Purchasers will receive media (or, for electronic delivery, an email with links to downloads and the portal), license agreement and instructions for activating the Btrieve 12 LDL deployment pack (on the Actian deployment portal at http://deploy.pervasive.com). On the portal, Btrieve 12 LDL holders can create Btrieve 12 keys for the copies of Btrieve 12 distributed with the application.
Distributing Btrieve 12: Btrieve 12 LDL holders who plan to distribute copies of Btrieve 12 with their application must register the application(s) in the Btrieve 12 Catalog. The Btrieve 12 LDL does not allow distribution of Btrieve 12 as a standalone product - it must be combined with the LDL holder's application(s).
