*2 There is a possibility that not be guaranteed to operate on the OS owing to the Windows Update.
In Windows10 Home Edition, Windows Update type is fixed "Current Branch"(update is performed automatically),
so we are recommend that Pro Edition or above.
*3 The product includes both of 32 bit and 64 bit OPC Server. When installing, user can select application.
The DDE and SuiteLink interfaces are not supported on x64 Edition.

*4 In Windows10, the service programs don't support to display the window by detection of the interactive service. If you configure the Device XPlorer settings, please execute as normal application.
*5 The communication performance decreases when the PLC connection number increases. CPU more than the dual core is recommended when connecting it with ten PLCs or more.
*6 The DDE and SuiteLink interfaces are not supported on x64 Edition.
