Additional Information

Q. On this W2K8 OS can the robot be updated to v9.30?

A. You may be able to upgrade to robot v9.30 but you must keep in mind that Windows 2008 is no longer supported nor tested going forward. Keep in mind that Microsoft is dropping support for Windows 2008 as well.

Q. Can the robot v7.96 be upgraded and run on "Windows Server 2008, 32-bit?"

A. You can try it, but,

a) you have to keep in mind that its officially tested and supported ONLY on robot v7.80 and not higher robot versions and

b) Windows 2008 is no longer supported as of UIM v20.1 or higher, and

c) Flash is deprecated as of the end of this year, so with UIM v20.3 coming out, customers should plan on upgrading to 20.1 or higher.
