 * InfoConnect Enterprise Edition 9.4 and earlier is not supported on Windows 10. For organizations moving to Windows 10 in production environments, we recommend upgrading from InfoConnect Enterprise Edition 9.x to InfoConnect Desktop version 16 or 17.  Windows 10 "Windows as a Service" Support Statement.  InfoConnect is supported on the following editions of Windows 10: Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise.  InfoConnect is supported on the in-market supported servicing branches (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-info.aspx ) of Windows 10 including:  Current Branch, Current Branch for Business, and Long-Term Servicing branches.

** InfoConnect Enterprise Edition 9.4 and earlier will install and run on Windows XP-32 bit.  Micro Focus Customer Support does not provide support for InfoConnect Enterprise Edition 9.4 on Windows XP.  We do offer an extended support plan option for older product versions and unsupported operating systems. For further information, please see our extended support policy page: https://www.microfocus.com/en-us/support/extended-plus

*** Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft, but InfoConnect 9.6 should work on Windows 7.  Micro Focus provides Customer Support to maintained customers on Micro Focus client desktop products that are being run on supported operating systems and meet the criteria in the Product Support Lifecycle.  If an issue does occur on Windows 7, Micro Focus Customer Support will work to isolate the cause of the problem and may ask you to duplicate the issue in a currently supported operating system environment.  If we believe that the cause of the problem is in the hardware or operating system layer of the environment and does not occur outside the environment, we may direct you to your operating system vendor for technical support.

Note the following:
  • Using InfoConnect in multi-user mode requires one of the following applications (and adherence to the terms of the license agreement):
    • Windows Server 2019, 2016, 2012, 2008 or 2003 Windows Terminal Services
    • InfoConnect is supported only on Citrix versions currently supported by Citrix at the time of the InfoConnect release.
  • ActivClient smart card authentication using PKCS#11 requires ActivClient CAC version 6.2.0.

Using InfoConnect Help

Starting with InfoConnect 9.6, the Help files which ship with the product have been converted to HTML format, and will now launch in an Internet Browser window.

To view the legacy InfoConnect 9.5 and earlier Help on Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008, you must install the Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe), which is available for download from the Microsoft web site. For more information, see KB 7021283. Note: Beginning with Windows Server 2012, WinHlp32.exe is not available, so legacy Help is not supported.

Additional Information

For information about current versions of InfoConnect products and components, see the Attachmate Product Support Lifecycle at https://support.microfocus.com/programs/lifecycle/version-status.html?infoconnect

In preparing system requirements guidelines, Micro Focus may rely on published claims (that it cannot independently confirm) regarding the capabilities of third party products. Micro Focus therefore recommends that you contact your suppliers directly with questions or concerns regarding their products.
