Speed II customers must upgrade both their Speed II and the Wang operating system for Y2K compliance. Release 7.2 of Speed II is the earliest release supported by APPX Software for Y2K issues. Our most current release is 7.3.2. Your Wang operating system must also be upgraded to release 7.53. NOTE: Releases of Speed II prior to 7.0 are not compatible with release 7.53 of the Wang operating system. Speed II must be upgraded prior to the operating system to prevent an interruption due to this difference.
