I Need Actian Zen Edge or Zen Core v13!
This page was created to help users that need to download Actian Zen Edge v13 or Zen Core v13 to do it quickly and easily. However, please note that these products are very new and are not installed on traditional platforms. Instead, they are installed on devices running Raspbian, Android, or iOS, which changes the installation process when compared with other Zen products.
STEP 1: Download the Code
You must first download the Zen Edge or Core v13 code and any patches from Actian's web site.
1. Click HERE for step by step instructions on how to navigate Actian's site to find your downloads.
2. Click HERE to go to Actian's web site to start the download.
STEP 2: Install the Code
- Zen Edge: Zen Edge doesn't use a standard EXE installer like other Windows environments, but instead is installed with a very basic install process. At this time, we have custom installation instructions for the Raspberry Pi environment, but none for Windows IoT Core. If you have specific questions, please contact Actian directly for assistance.
- Zen Core: Zen Core doesn't actually get installed either, but rather just gets added to the development environmment as a library. See the included readme file for additional information.
STEP 3: Purchase your License
After you have installed the 30-day trial and know exactly what license you need, contact us to purchase your license, or order it online from our secure shopping site.
STEP 4: Install the License
Because they are brand new, I have not yet seen a license install for either of these platforms. Because of this, your guess is a good as mine!
I don't know what all of this means! I need more help!
If you have a question about the Actian web site, their trial download or the patch installation, we recommend contacting Actian Corporation directly by calling 800-BTRIEVE (800-287-4383), selecting options for Zen Database Support, and then speaking with someone in their call center. (International users should find the closest contact point from Actian's web site.)
