DiscoverIT Supported Operating Systems
This is a description of all operating systems that DiscoverIT supports.
Mac OS X and macOS
DiscoverIT supports the three latest OS releases from Apple. As of January 2021, that includes Big Sur (11 or 10.16), Catalina (10.15), and Mojave (10.14). DiscoverIT will do what they can to support older releases, but can only guarantee software and server access for the three most current releases.
DiscoverIT supports all versions of Windows that Microsoft currently supports. As of August 2021, that includes Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. DiscoverIT will do what they can to support older versions, but can only guarantee software and server access for the three most current releases. Any older versions of Windows (most notably Windows XP and 7) should not be allowed to access the internet. If you have a Windows XP or Windows 7 computer that can access the internet, please contact DiscoverIT to have this remedied.
The expiration dates for each version of Windows 10 can be found at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet
