KB309: Omnivex legacy products and Windows operating systems

Summary

Omnivex legacy products are considered feature complete and will not receive additional functionality. In most cases these products have been replaced by other products; customers with annual maintenance and support (AMS) can migrate to the new product based on their existing license. Omnivex supports these products under our AMS program. Listed below is the most recent version of each Omnivex legacy product and their supported operating systems. The information below is subject to change. This article is regularly updated.

Each product is rated based on internal testing at Omnivex and appropriate application in the field. Certain products that are targeted for server environments may operate on client environments and vise versa. We do not test and support all possible situations, but try to make allowance to support the most practical environments. The rating categories are listed here with Omnivex' corresponding support level details.

  • Recommended - Tested and demonstrates optimal performance.
  • Supported - Tested and demonstrates acceptable performance.
  • Untested - Not tested and not supported under AMS program.
  • Unsupported - Known issues and not supported under AMS program.
