IT Alerts

See Keystone Hardware Requirements at GivenHansco.com

Windows Server 2016/2019

Keystone is fully supported on Windows Server 2016/2019. Keystone relies on the InterBase database from a third-party vendor. This vendor is only certifying their current releases of InterBase (XE7 & 2017) for Windows Server 2016/2019. Therefore, we urge you to contact our sales staff regarding the cost of upgrading your current InterBase version to 2017 when planning your rollout of Windows Server 2016/2019.

Windows 10

Keystone is fully supported on Windows 10. In some cases the version of Interbase database software may need to be updated.

For multiuser systems where Interbase XE or higher is installed on a server there is no issue updating client computers to Windows 10.

For stand-alone systems (or should the PC be used as a server) then the version of Interbase may need to be updated. Keystone relies on the InterBase database from a third-party vendor. This vendor is only certifying their current releases of InterBase (XE7 & 2017) for Windows 10. Therefore, we urge you to contact our sales staff regarding the cost of upgrading your current InterBase version to 2017 when planning your rollout of Windows 10.


Please contact GivenHansco support any time you plan to upgrade equipment for advice and compatibility review.
