* BuildIT does not support Windows XP or Windows Vista as an operating platform. This is in line with Microsoft’s decision to discontinue support for the platform starting April 2014. You may use BuildIT 2014 SP3 on XP and BuildIT 2014.5 SP4 on Vista for as long as you like and support will be provided, as per your support contract and compatible service packs (SP) may be released to address specific issues, but there will be no version upgrades to support this platform.
** Hardware acceleration for the video driver should be turned ON. We recommend updating the video driver to the most recent released version from the manufacturer website.
*** Fonts should be set to normal size (96 dpi).
