Microsoft® Operating System Compatibility

Over the years, both On Center Software and Microsoft have developed and released new versions of their software. The grid below indicates which versions of On Center Software's products are compatible with various versions of Windows. For our policy on which versions of our Classic products are supported and for how long, see CLS - Product End of Life (Sunset Plan).

Notes

On Center Software supports our software installed and operated only on versions of Windows currently under "Mainstream Support" with Microsoft. When a version of Windows is 'retired' by Microsoft, products that were limited to installation on that operating system (or earlier ones) only are no longer supported by On Center. Products limited to Windows versions that fall of "Extended Support" with Microsoft will no longer be distributed. If your version is no longer supported or is limited to a Windows operating system version that is no longer supported by Microsoft, please contact Customer Success at 866-627-6246 to discuss your options.

On Center products are designed for and tested on US-English versions of Windows®. There may be minor display issues when installed on other regional versions of Windows.

On Center products are designed for and tested on Professional and Enterprise editions of Windows®. We do not test on “Home” editions or other non-business-level editions of Windows and cannot guarantee that you will be able to install or run PlanSwift on any editions of Windows other than Professional and Enterprise.

"Server" operating systems should not be used as a Desktop operating systems - they are not designed for this function. The applications are not tested nor certified when using any Windows "Server" version as a desktop, personal computing operating system. Server versions are listed here for clients using Remote Desktop Services to 'publish' the products through virtual desktops. Server operating systems may display some parts of a program's interface a little different (menus, toolbars, etc.) which does not affect the overall usability or functionality of the program.

Warning - Upgrading Your Operating System
If you are planning on upgrading your operating system (say, from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10), you must return all product licenses and uninstall On-Screen Takeoff/Digital Production Control and Quick Bid before installing the OS upgrade. Once you have completed the OS upgrade, run Windows Update several times to ensure your Windows OS is fully-updated. Then reinstall OST/DPC/QB and re-license.
