2014 Operating System Support
The Control System software we’re releasing for the 2014 season has been tested and will be officially supported on Windows 7 and Windows 8. The software has not been certified to work on Windows XP. This doesn’t mean it won’t work, just that we can’t guarantee it, and we won’t be able to provide anything beyond cursory support if you decide to use it.
I’ll blog again soon.
