Q: Which versions of Windows support RPM Remote Print Manager® ("RPM")?
A: Our policy is, and has been, to support RPM on any version of Windows supported by Microsoft. There may be limits to "any," but any mainstream version should certainly work.
Note that "End of Life" refers to Microsoft's published end of support date.
|Windows version||End of Life||Notes|
|Windows 7||January 14, 2020||As far as we know, RPM still works on Windows 7|
|Server 2008 (including R2)||January 14, 2020||Server 2008 is equivalent to Vista. As far as we know, R2 still works.|
|Windows 8||January 12, 2016||We're not sure if anyone is still using Windows 8 with RPM.|
|Windows 8.1||January 9, 2018||Same as Windows 8|
|Server 2012 (including R2)||October 9, 2018||Server 2012 R2 is still in use with RPM|
|Server 2016||January 11, 2022||Server 2016 is still in use with RPM|
|Windows 10||October 14, 2025||Windows 10 is the primary platform used in our office for development and support|
|Server 2019||January 9, 2024||We test with Server 2019 from time to time but don't run it in-house|
|Windows 11||<unknown>||The primary difference with Windows 11, besides the UI changes, seems to require newer device drivers. We know of nothing that affects using RPM, and we can test on that platform if something does come up.|
We do our best to support popular versions of Windows even after their support officially expires. However, this depends entirely on Microsoft providing library support for these platforms. Without that, we can't build a working release of RPM.
Platforms we do not support:
- Server 2003
- Windows XP
- Windows NT
- Server 2000
- Windows 95 or Windows Millennium Edition
