Allegro releases nine free utilities for MPE/iX

The utilities are as follows: CHKBADSL, CHKRTMSL, DISKMAP, FILLSCR, FIXROOT, PDCPATHS, QDUMP, RAMUSAGE, UNWRQ

Allegro releases new MPE utility XSCHEMA

For most of MPE’s history, customers have relied on third-party commercial products such as Adager, DBGeneral, and our own DBHTML as the means to “decompile” Image database root files into human-readable schema text files. We’re happy to announce XSCHEMA as the latest addition to our extensive catalog of free MPE utilities. XSCHEMA produces database schema files compatible with MPE’s DBSCHEMA utility.

Allegro Expands Data Migration Offerings

Allegro is pleased to announce a significant expansion of our data migration offerings. Previously, we have provided customers with the means to convert legacy TurboIMAGE databases into a number of target formats including Eloquence, CSV, HTML, and XML using our various utilities such as Rosetta Store, DBHTML, or DBCSV, as well as customized migration processing tailored to individual customer needs. We now support a variety of SQL based target formats including MySQL and Microsoft SQL Server databases.

Allegro offers…


To real problems. Your problems. We provide customers with better-than-OEM support services, managed services, products, and expertise. Making hard problems go away is what we do every day. Let us show you how we can solve issues facing your business today.


We offer new recurring revenue sources to our service partners through innovative support service packages that add value to their existing offerings while making their own operations easier and less labor intensive. Customers get the benefits of new and better assistance services, delivered by people who have many years experience in real-world customer environments and who understand their needs.


When we started all this, in 1984, the industry was at the height of the proprietary operating system era when vertical market applications and customized solutions were the norm. In today’s age of “open systems“, many don’t know how smooth IT operations can be when you have tools that are built for the express purpose of making your business run. But we remember those days and our people carry forward the ideals of those times while applying them to today’s modern IT ecosystems.


From business best practices developed over many years and across many computing platforms, to system internals, compiler and kernel development, education and training, we have been addressing our customers’ critical business needs for decades.
