Install Required Software

98, ME and 2000-2.0
XP (SP2 or higher)-3.5 SP1
Vista2.03.5 SP1
Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10deactivated3.5 SP1

Minimum Requirement: Version 2.0. However, we recommend 3.5, because only this version enables all features of X10Receiver.NET v2.
Important: If you use .NET Framework 3.5, please make sure that its Service Pack 1 is installed (it is already included in the downloads linked above)! Important: While having version 4.0 or higher doesn't hurt, it also doesn't contain version 3.5, so you will need to install that separately.
