Operating Systems Supported

The following table shows the operating systems supported by the versions of the major K2 v7.5 components, as of this release. While some components may operate correctly on operating system versions that are not listed, the versions that are listed are the only ones that are supported by Sassafras Software for this release of K2. Specifically, the client components might work on older versions of Windows (98, 98SE, ME, NT4, 2000), but because these older OS versions are no longer included in Microsoft's API compatibility documentation, we can no longer guarantee correct operation on them. As for OS versions newer than those listed below, check the online component history for the most up-to-date information on support and compatibility.
