UVNC vs. operating system compatibility vs. caveats

Postby AnotherUVNCuser » 2017-09-18 04:05

Greetings users of the wonderful and free U(ltra)VNC program, and Rudi De Vos (i'm also dutch btw, and you're flemish?)


I'm sorry if this question has been asked/answered a dozen of times before already, but besides using the search function and browsing through the posts under General help, Beginner questions and FAQ i haven't been able to find an answer for my question.

I basically want to know what happens if i run a binary on different operating system than it is build for.

Are the WIN8 builds 100% compatible with Windows Vista, 7 and 10 or are there any caveats i should be aware of?

And what does OS compatibility and caveats list for the XP binaries look like?

Hopefully someone is willing to answer these questions :-)


Best regards,

At compiler time you need to tell what kernel you want to support. ( XP or later)
Al XP versions have been compiled with functions that existed in XP, natural they still exist in the later OS's.
XP versions works on all OS's >= XP
Drawback: It's a little slower and non existing functions need to be mapped out.

The win8 version make use of the nieuw capture engine ( win8 >=).
It run on win7 >= on win7 it default to the older capture method.

The XP version can be used on all OS's but from win8 you gain speed by using the win8 version.

Hello Rudi,

Ok, so on Windows 7 it doesn't matter which one i use.
Thank you for the explanation :-)
