More Information

Isode strongly recommends that production services operate only on supported platforms, and that evaluations of Isode products are only undertaken on supported platforms.

Use of the Isode servers on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 is appropriate for simple evaluations and demonstrations. However, Isode does not support running the servers on these operating systems in a production environment.

In addition to all the server platforms, the Isode client applications, and customer applications written using Isode client SDKs, are fully supported on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10

The Solaris SPARC packages are only supported on UltraSPARC processors (sun4u architecture) or later.

Linux and Windows packages require an x86-64 compatible processor. In all cases the operating system must be updated with all available updates and patches from the operating system supplier. This can be important for the security of your system. Isode reserves the right not to support a system which is not up to date.

On Solaris it is necessary to have the latest patched version of Sun’s C++ run time libraries. Patch numbers are:

  • SPARC: 119963-19
