Trying to get Vantage 8.0 from Epicor

I downloaded the documents to upgrade from 6.1 to 8.0. Open Edge
(progress 10) installation has nothing new to it. The same for Vantage
80 - progress explorer, etc. They recommend to have 9.1 D and 6.1
installed in the same server (if I remember correctly). I think the big
change is not in the installation and upgrade of your database. It is
the software itself and what better way to test where you are than
actually having the software installed and a test database
working.....No 2 companies are alike and in my case, I have 4 to worry
about. I have not subscribe to an e-learning session because again, I
have no where to practice what I just learn and whether or not would be
applicable to one or all of the companies we have in Vantage (just my 2
cents trying to get some reaction to the imposed steps that seem more
like a consulting services sales pitch than anything else).

Epicor will be requiring all companies to go thru a 8-10 step upgrade
checklist. All items on the check list must be met before they are
willing to ship out the software. Of course, if you are a beta site,
you probably already have the software but as for everybody else they
want to make sure that we are all aware of the magnitude of upgrading to
version 8.

Has anyone try to get the software yet? I have been trying since January
and it seems that Epicor keeps putting obstacles along the way (to me at
least). First was to view hardware requirements. Now, to buy a toolkit,
get into elearning classes (with no test database to practice...), etc.
Anyone experiencing the same thing?

Thanks.

I am just glad they pumped sunlight you know where back in October :) I
spent 3 days of training on vaporware. I am sure I have retained 0% of it.
And what little I retained I am sure they will change anyway.

The official word from Epicor is that, that is going to be the process to
get 8.0. 8.0 is very different from the existing installs. I've spoken with
consultants and this is also the approach they are urging. Forcing users to
get their ducks in a row is one way to keep from being flooded with support
calls.
