Microsoft has declared that support for the Windows XP operating system has ended as of April 8, 2014; no further security updates and technical support will be provided. As a result, many organizations are upgrading their infrastructure with new systems running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10 operating systems.
End of Support for Windows XP
Since Corelis can no longer guarantee compatibility with unsupported Microsoft operating systems, ScanExpress CD Version 8.3 will be the last version of ScanExpress Corelis supported and tested on Windows XP operating systems. Future releases will no longer be tested and supported in Windows XP; it is possible that ScanExpress software releases will work with older operating systems, but they will not be tested by Corelis for compatibility and customers using Windows XP will not be supported.
Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10
The current release of ScanExpress software is supported under Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10 operating systems. Earlier ScanExpress software versions were not tested in and may not function correctly in these environments. Table 1 below lists individual ScanExpress application versions and their support status.

We strongly encourage all customers upgrading their client systems to the latest version of ScanExpress tools to ensure compatibility. The latest software can be downloaded from the Corelis download page with a current maintenance contract.

32-bit and 64-bit Compatibility
ScanExpress tools and controller SFLs are 32-bit application compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows. However, the APIs associated with these tools may not be linked by a 64-bit executable system such as LabVIEW 64-bit. For the latest information on 64-bit compatibility for APIs, please contact Corelis support at email@example.com.
