HomeBack It is strongly recommended that systems running on server hardware need to use the Windows Server operating system. Server operating systems are designed for servicing entire systems rather than individual computers or small networks and so are better suited for larger SCADA Server or Web Server systems with more than two clients.
Systems running on desktop hardware should run desktop operating systems such as Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. Desktop operating systems are designed for user interaction on the computer on which they are installed.
Desktop operating systems should not be used for SCADA Servers or Web Servers with more than two clients as the TCP/IP security measures in these operating systems can cause significant delays.
Refer to the following table for supported Operating System versions:
64-Bit Operating Systems
(ViewX client, SCADA Server and Web Server)
Windows 10 (Professional and Enterprise editions) Version 1809 and above. Windows 8.1 (Professional and Enterprise editions)
Windows Server 2019 (Standard and Datacenter editions) Windows Server 2016 (Standard and Datacenter editions) Windows Server 2012 R2 (Standard and Datacenter editions)
