List of Deprecated Platforms and Applications

If a third-party vendor discontinues support for a platform, that platform, as well as any products associated with it, is considered deprecated. While the product or platform may continue to be used on an "as-is" basis, the following caveats will apply:

  • Fixes/updates will not be provided.
  • No new features will be supported.

The Installation Package Version column indicates the SnapProtect installation package version that last supported the deprecated platform or application. To install any of the versions displayed in the Installation Package Version column, you must configure some additional settings on the CommServe and client computer. For more information, see Installing Clients from Older SnapProtect Versions.
