Client Moderator PC requirements for using Presentation Manager

Note: All Windows Products (Browser, Media Player, OS) are supported in accordance with Microsoft’s published Product Lifecycle. RealPlayer support is similarly determined in accordance with RealNetworks’ support policy. It is a safe assumption that products for which Microsoft Corporation or Real Networks no longer provide free support will be removed from the “Supported” list. Browsers with less than 1% market share are not normally supported.

  • “Supported” means that we fully test every significant change to the platform with the cited software. It does not imply a contractual obligation to provide customer support for it for any particular platform.
  • “Generally Compatible” means that we believe that it will work for most events, but we do not regression test every code change in the target environment, and do not provide technical support in the event of problems on these platforms.
  • “Not supported” means that we do not have any confidence that it works on these configurations.
