This list is automatically updated to show only those OS versions in mainstream support by Microsoft, and therefore supported by 1E, and by 1E Client 5.0. However the following OS continue to be supported as exceptions to help customers during their migration to the latest OS:

  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows 7 SP1

Please refer to Constraints of Legacy OS regarding end of mainstream support.

  • .NET Framework 4.8
  • .NET Framework 4.7.2

  • .NET Framework 4.7
  • .NET Framework 4.6.2

Other Windows Software

PowerShell is not a prerequisite for installation of the 1E Client. PowerShell is used by some Tachyon instructions (that have PowerShell commands embedded or scripts that are downloaded) and some of these require PowerShell 3.0 or later.

1E Client provides Tachyon client features. It also includes the Nomad client module which replaces the legacy Nomad Branch client. Tachyon client features can optionally use Nomad to download content (feature enabled by default) if the Nomad client module in 1E Client is enabled (module disabled by default) or Nomad Branch 6.3.100 or later is running.

Constraints of Legacy OS

  • Windows 8.0
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows Server 2003 *
