any version up to v4.5, XP.
v5.1 XP or Win7
v7 XP, Win7, Win8, or Win10

v5.1 or v7, 32 or 64bit, it's your choice. no STS samplers in 64bit.

Wow version 7 on XP

One micro ATX machine from 10 years ago, Intel Q9450 will come in handy - that machine is staying XP!

Can't help it, but XP turned out to be the least annoying flavour of that OS for me over the years... :D
(no sophisticated piece of tech, but does the job - quite stable since disconnected from i-net and nothing new gets installed)

yeah I'm trying to avoid an imminent system upgrade.....now got 4x "retired" XP pc's now off the grid & dedicated to studio purpose only.... I think one of them dates back to early 2000's :D .....& at last count 10x scope cards spread over them :o

Possibly a single new PC & XITE could replace the lot......BUT....I then wouldn't have 6x monitors to watch all that scope goodness :wink:

Anyone ever try one of the Windows server OS? Windows Server 2003 Enterprise appears to be XP streamlined with the ability to use 32 gigs of RAM on a 32 bit OS. They aren't that expensive on that auction site.......

i am glad that you have everything working just the way you like, but others won't have the same result.
