Support for 64-bit Windows

Where listed in the Supported Operating Systems table, 64-bit Windows operating systems are supported. Reflection Desktop Pro and Reflection Desktop for X have separate downloads for 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. The 64-bit product contains:

  • Reflection X Advantage, a native 64-bit application that uses the 64-bit Java runtime environment (JRE).
  • Reflection Desktop (Reflection Workspace), with host emulation for UNIX and OpenVMS and/or host emulation for IBM, is a 32-bit application. However, the 64-bit .NET Framework Runtime is used on Windows 64-bit operating systems, which also supports native 64-bit applications calling the Reflection Desktop .NET API.

Note: The 64-bit product does not contain Reflection X (Legacy) version 14.x. If you need Reflection X (Legacy):

  • For 32-bit Reflection X (Legacy), install the 32-bit Reflection X 2014 or Reflection Pro 2014 product.
  • For 64-bit Reflection X (Legacy), see the predecessor product on the download site, KB 7021763, and KB 7021807.

Java Runtime Environment (JRE)

Reflection X Advantage requires Java. If you install using the Setup program (setup.exe), a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is installed by default. It is also possible to configure Reflection X Advantage to use a different JRE. For details about how to configure a non-default JRE, see "Changing the JRE" in the Reflection X Advantage help.

If you install Reflection on Windows directly with MSI or with a deployment tool, you must install Java directly. To do this, use MicroFocusJava.msi, in the subfolder Prerequisites\JDK.

Help Requirements

An Internet browser is required to view the application Help. JavaScript must be enabled to use navigation, search, and other Help features. Supported browsers include Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome.

Reflection X (Legacy) 14.1 SP5

The Reflection X (Legacy) component product included with certain editions of Reflection Desktop (and currently not installed by default) is not supported on Windows 10. Customers that require X Server capabilities should install the Reflection X Advantage component on Windows 10.
