Product Compatibility Information


Apple-Windows Logo

Before selecting a software version:
– be sure you are working on a supported operating system
– you have taken the free, fully-functional software trial (software sales are final sales)

Before updating your OS:
– make sure ALL software manufacturer versions will move to the new OS, or if they will require an upgrade

Important to note:
– a crash or reformat can trigger the need for an upgrade
– an auto update of your OS can trigger the need for an upgrade
– AccuRIP and SPSS do not force the upgrade, only a change in a user’s environment such as an operating system change will make earlier versions incompatible
