Note: The server requires Microsoft XML 6.0 parser. If this parser is not already present on your system, the setup program installs it. Parser installation does not override or replace any other versions of Microsoft XML parser on your system, and this change does not affect software that uses other versions of the parser.

Note: Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows 8.3 installs MSVC++ runtime version 14.15 from Visual Studio 2017.  The files are included in the 8.3 MSI installer and are no longer included as a prerequisite installer as in 8.2.  You may see a "Files in use, Some applications that need to be updated are currently in use." message pop up during the installation of 8.3, even with Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable already installed. This happens when   MSVC++ 2017 has lower version files, e.g. 14.12, than included with the 8.3 installer.  You can either choose to "Automatically close and attempt to restart these applications" or "Do not close these applications. (a reboot will be required).  Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows requires a server reboot to complete its installation.

Using Windows Client Help

To view the Windows Client Help Topics on the Web, a web browser is required. You need to enable JavaScript to use navigation, search, and other Help features.

To view the legacy 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 Technical Note 2294. Note: Beginning with Windows Server 2012, WinHlp32.exe is not available, so legacy Help is not supported.

For the 8.0 release, the Windows Client Help Topics are locally installed html files. Product documentation for the 8.0 release can be viewed on all supported platforms.
