Bengt User Is this the pro version of ?

George Henne It's the Essential version. The difference from Pro is that it does not include 1-1 support and you get a discounted subscription to VoltBuilder. It's by far our most popular version.

Auf Deutsch: Habe nach dem Kauf bisher nur einen Download-Link zur 7er Demo-Version bekommen. Weder eine 8er Essentials Version noch eine Registrierungs-Info. Kommt das in einer weiteren Mail?

Steve Bigelow This sounds like a good tool for building apps from scratch. However... my use case is a little different: I'm trying to update an existing web app from ~ 2015 to take advantage of current JavaScript features and conventions. (The app is the usual mix of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML.) I want to be able to deploy to a traditional web server/ browser client, to a standalone Windows app (Electron?), and to Android devices (both phones and ChromeBooks). Any thoughts on whether my particular use case fits with what NBS/AppStudio offers?

George Henne This doesn't sound a like a good use case. The advantage of AppStudio is that helps quickly build and update your app - but it sets up the project files in a certain way, which will be quite different from what you have now.

Thanks for asking!

HJ User I installed the program on a Windows 10 computer. The release notes automatically opened, but the following error message was superimposed:
"Fatal error detected"
"Failed to execute script AppStudio"
with an OK button.

What do I do know?

George Henne Is this the first time you've installed AppStudio?
