There were atleast a couple of threads on Baanboard.com in the past telling that level2 is not/will not be available on BaanIV.
The U7648A US document has baan settings for level2 mentioned just for BaanERP and not BaanIV. Since the document was common for BaanIV and BaanERP, it lead to confusion. This is a pure documentation defect and nothing to do with Baan's policies about level2.
The solution 129671 was another communication mistake. Baan development has always told that there will be no level2 driver for BaanIV on SQL7 or SQL2000.
If there are good number of customers who need level2 driver on BaanIV (and if they are willing to pay; considering the effort it may take to make the level2 driver on BaanIV), then I don't think Baan would like to lose the opportunity.
If someone posted on this discussion board that there would be level2 driver for BaanIV, it would have been his/her personal opinion (probably based on the wrong information he/she has) and we can't conisder it to be a word given by Baan itself.
In my opinion, the best way to let Baan know the need for level2 driver on BaanIV is to log cases and let them know the justification (official and not personal) about why it is so important. Once there are sufficient number of customers asking for the level2 driver on BaanIV, then Baan will definitely pay necessary attention and take necessary action.
Thanks & Regards,
