The Thoroughbred Environment version 8.4.1 is required to support the new VIP. The new and improved Graphical User Interface is now a 32 bit product providing performance, stability and compatibility with Windows 95 and NT 4.0. This release also introduces several new modules.

Remote host connections are now made using a new module Tbredcom.exe. This eliminates the requirement of DynaComm. TbredComm provides both a 32 bit TCP/IP and a Serial interface and a for optimum network communication and ANSI terminal emulation. TbredComm has been designed to support the specific needs of the Thoroughbred Environment.

The WorkStation Manager™ is the 4th tier to the Thoroughbred Environment. All graphical messaging between the host and the workstation is processed through the WorkStation Manager. In addition to managing all the messaging between tasks, the WorkStation Manger provides integration and control at the Desktop level including executing application programs from an icon or from the Windows Start button. All VIP environment options are maintained by the WorkStation Manager Options Tab control.
