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