RavTrack PC Revision Log

RavTrack PC was first released in February 2008. It is built with Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2008 on the .NET 3.5 foundation and a mapping engine from Franson tools. It is a multi-threading Windows XP/Vista application that can track hundreds of vehicles in true real-time without overloading the computer it is running on. It used Crystal Reports 10 to generate printed and exportable reports, and it uses Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft Access as its database engine.
