Does sora work with vista OS? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I just try my sora broad in a dell workstation.

    I believe all the hardware is qualified to.... and just the Vista system can not open the SDK packege.

    My wondering is whether Vista is work with sora braod? or I need to find XP/win 7 computer.

  • My distinct understanding is that SORA uses the NDIS 5.x framework, while Vista and 7 use 6.x, hence the incompatibilities. Win7 doesn't even work yet because of this, but is a target for future releases. As a result, XP is all you're supposed to use for now. You could still develop on a XP machine, but as for building, there might be some difficulties, and driver installation wouldn't work due to the framework incompatibilities.

  • Hi Sandy,

    We will add support for Windows 7 in later release, but currently, Sora only works in Windows XP.
