Operating Systems Supported
- 64-bit Windows: Windows 7 and Windows 10
- 64-bit Linux: We officially support Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 and 6. Since there is a large variation of possible configurations of any Linux installation for items such as libraries, fonts, startup scripts, security settings, etc., Synopsys cannot unconditionally guarantee that our software will work correctly with all Linux distributions. However, in practice, we have found that the software can be configured to run successfully on most 64-bit Linux distributions with kernel 2.6.x..
Because Microsoft has stopped supporting Windows 7, Photonic Solutions releases after 2020.03 will not support Windows 7. In addition, Photonic Solutions releases after 2020.03 will not support RHEL and CentOS 6.5 or older, or Linux versions with a kernel older than 2.6.32-504 and glibc older than 2.12.
