Windows XP & 2003 Server Support
With the addition of FIPS 140-2 compatibility in Predator FLM v11, support for Windows XP & 2003 Server had to be deprecated. Client PCs running Windows XP and 2003 Server are still supported.
Predator FLM v10 still supports Windows XP and 2003 Server. This is an option when FIPS 140-2 compatibility is not required. However, customers still running Predator FLM on Windows XP and 2003 Server are strongly recommended to upgrade their Windows infrastructure.
