Last week in this article I discussed how to use Rockwell’s PCDC webpage to look up the compatibility of Rockwell Software packages with Microsoft Windows operating systems.

In today’s article we’ll take a look at the results for FactoryTalk View:

FactoryTalk View compatibility with Windows XP:

FactoryTalk View ME and Windows XP

In the above screen shot of Rockwell’s PCDC webpage we can see versions 5.00 through 8.00 all support Windows XP.

Note: Rockwell has stated version 8 is the last version to support Windows XP.

FactoryTalk View compatibility with Windows 7:

FactoryTalk View ME and Windows 7

In the above screen shot of Rockwell’s PCDC webpage we can see versions 6.00 through 8.00 all have some support for Windows 7.

FactoryTalk View compatibility with Windows 8:

FactoryTalk View ME and Windows 8

In the above screen shot of Rockwell’s PCDC webpage we can see version 8 is the only version to include support for the Windows 8 operating system.

I hope the above look at FactoryTalk View compatibility with Windows XP, 7 and 8 was helpful.
