OS Support

DW Spectrum® IPVMS is a cross-platform software and is supported on all major operating systems.  The advantage of cross-platform functionality is that computers that are using different operating systems can work with other computers that are using a different OS.  For example, a Windows instance of the DW Spectrum® Client software can work and communicate with an Ubuntu instance of the DW Spectrum® Server software.

This article will list the supported operating systems and their estimated end-of-support (EoS) dates.

**NOTE:  This article applies to DW Spectrum® IPVMS v4.2 and DW Spectrum® Mobile v20.4 and does not apply to prior versions of DW Spectrum® IPVMS as they are now outdated.
