Software Compatibility

Operating Systems Supported

Most of our software is compatible with all of the following operating systems:

 
Fully supported:
 
  • Windows XP Home with SP3
  • Windows XP Professional with SP3
  • Windows Vista (x86 and x64), all versions
  • Windows 7 (x86 and x64), all versions
  • Windows 8, all versions
  • Windows 8.1, all versions
  • Windows 10, all versions

All of our products are tested on 64-bit versions of Windows and are fully supported.  Drivers for our current dongle provider (WIBU) are available for both x86 and x64 environments.  The one exception to this is Windows XP 64-bit is no longer supported by the compiler being used.  32-bit versions of applications will function properly, but 64-bit will not.

Note that we specifically do not assure support with Windows Server editions, such as Windows Server 2008 or 2012.  Some products may function correctly in this environment, but we do not support their use.

Previously, much of our software would operate on Windows 9x (all the way back to Windows 95!) and Windows 2000.  With the latest complier we are using this is no longer the case.  Windows XP is the hard limit on what is supported and anything below that will receive odd error messages.  We strongly recommend Windows 7 and later for all purposes.

Hardware Supported

Presently, our products run in a PC environment only.  We would appreciate hearing from people  interested in Apple versions.  Most of our products have been informally tested by customers on virtualization environments such as Parallels and VMWare.

We have tested our products on both Intel and AMD processors.  If you are experiencing problems on an AMD processor, this is not due to any incompatibility with an AMD processor.

Video displays using 8-bit (paletted) video are no longer supported.  A minimum display resolution of 1024x768 is strongly recommended.  Notebook computers with less vertical resolution can be used but some displays may be partially off-screen.

Emulated CD/DVD devices through virtual machines and drivers are not supported as "real" CD/DVD devices for products that interact directly with drives.  To access an image file use the image file directly and not through some virtualized device interface.

All software is covered by our standard license agreement.
