System Requirements

LogicGem 4.0 supports all modern Windows desktop and server platforms. We recommend you install the latest security updates from Windows Update that are available for your system.

The following Windows desktop and server operating systems are supported by LogicGem:

  • Windows 11
  • Windows 10
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 8
  • Windows 7 SP1
  • Windows Server 2022
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2008 R2

LogicGem is supported on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows.

Windows 11

Microsoft released Windows 11 on October 5, 2021 and LogicGem 4.0 is fully supported on the platform. It is recommended you update Windows 11 to version 22H2, which was released on September 20, 2022, or a more recent version with the latest security updates.

Windows 10

LogicGem 4.0 supports Windows 10, however some earlier versions are no longer supported by Microsoft. It is recommended you update Windows 10 to version 22H2 which was released on October 18, 2022.

Microsoft no longer supports versions of Windows 10 prior to Build 1909 (19H2), with the exception of Build 1809 in the Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) which will be supported until 2029. SocketTools supports both standard and LTSC builds, however we always recommend you update to the current build and install all security updates.

Windows 8

LogicGem continues to support both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, however we recommend you update to Windows 8.1 Update 1 (6.3.9600) if possible. Windows 8 has already reached end of support, including security updates, as of January 10, 2023. This means that technical assistance and software updates will no longer be provided by Microsoft for this version of Windows.

Windows 7

LogicGem will continue to provide support for Windows 7, although it reached its end of support on January 14, 2020. Because of its widespread adoption, we have extended support for this platform as users transition to Windows 11.

The minimum supported version of Windows 7 is 6.1.7601 (SP1). It is important that all security updates be installed, including KB4474419 (September 2019) which provides important security related updates.

Windows XP and Windows Vista

Microsoft discontinued support for Windows XP in 2014, and support for Windows Vista ended in 2017. Neither of these platforms receive security updates and they do not support modern security requirements.

LogicGem 3.0 is the last version which provided binary support for Windows XP and Vista. LogicGem 4.0 requires Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 or later versions.
