Performance Now 8 is only supported as a desktop installation. Unlike prior versions of Performance Now, version 8 utilizes a SQL Express database that requires a standard desktop installation. A license must be purchased for each user and computer where Performance Now is installed.


In Performance Now version 4 there were three separate modules within Performance Now that you could use to accomplish different tasks, such as designing forms. All modules have been consolidated into the single application, Performance Now 8.
