Windows 8* Driver versions v.5.4.3.7 and newer support Windows 8, 32 and 64-bit

Windows XP, Server 2003** Driver versions 5.x still run on Windows XP (32 and 64-bit), and Server 2003
Linux (standard distributions)*** Driver versions 5.x support 2.6.18.97 kernels and newer (tested through 4.8). Driver version 5.5.2.6 is needed for Linux kernels 4.4 and above.
Mac OS At present we do not provide drivers or support for MacOS >> details
VxWorks, Solaris, QNX At present we do not provide drivers or support for these operating systems >> details

* Windows drivers are built and tested using Windows 7. Validation testing on Windows 8 and 10 is done periodically but not on every new package. Vista and Server 2008 are not specifically tested, but the drivers are compatible to the best of our knowledge.

**Given Microsoft’s end of support for XP and Server 2003, EDT can only provide limited support and testing for these versions.

*** Linux drivers are built and tested using some or all of the current RedHat, Fedora, CentOS and Ubuntu releases. There are no known problems running on others (Debian, Yellow Dog, SuSE), but we don’t test on them either.
