Windows XP Support:


Issue: Windows XP is not supported by Scala Enterprise Designer and Player Release 11.03 and above.

Background: Windows XP support within Google Chrome ended as of April 2016 (with Version 50 of Chrome). For more information on this change, please see: https://chrome.googleblog.com/2015/11/updates-to-chrome-platform-support.html )

The Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF), the open source framework for embedding a web browser control used in Google Chrome, is used by Scala as part of its playback of HTML content.

Resolution: Scala's position on Windows XP was to officially end support as of the next major release. However, in order to take advantage of the latest features and security of CEF, Scala has had to adjust its position with Scala Enterprise release 11.02 being the last version to support playback under Windows XP which will continue to use CEF 47.

For those users who wish to use Windows 10, Scala currently supports Designer and Player playback against a 64-bit version of Consumer Windows 10, with some caveats, which are explained in greater detail here.
