.NET Based OPC UA Client/Server SDK
Using with Windows XP

Is Windows XP still supported?

No. In terms of that Mircosoft discontinued support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014, we will no longer provide support for Windows XP.

Microsoft: Windows XP support has ended

But, since our SDK supports .Net Framework 3.5, it can still be used without any guarantee on Windows XP (Service Pack 3).

How to prepare Windows XP?

To get the SDK run properly with Windows XP some steps have to be done:

  • install Windows XP Service Pack 3
  • install .Net Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1
  • activate IPv6 network settings (cmd: netsh interface ipv6 install)

Note: Since version 3.0.10 of the UA .Net SDK it is possible to use Windows XP without IPv6. Set the endpoint NetworkInterface property to "". This will force the server to listen to IPv4 Only. See EndpointSettings for more information.
