Hi,

What SP does PosReady 7 has? I am not completely familiar with it, but we start supporting Windows 7 from SP1. Is it possible that PosReady does not have that SP?

I have checked, it is SP3.
It is posible that the program doen not take into account the resul of the "OSVersionInfoSize" api ?
If Yes, ther is a way to arround it ?

It might be that this is indeed is not seen as a supported version. What certainly is true is that our QC did not test this version.
I will check if there is a way to override this but it will be at your own risk as it is not supported.

@SPZsoft

If you want to test this (again, at own risk so don't do this in production when testing)

https://tinkertry.com/veeam-endpoint-ba ... -2016-beta

Here you can find a procedure to "override" the check

spzsoft,

Try the procedure described in the the blog post Mike has shared and let us know if it works. Additionally, could you please test VAW 2.0 BETA on the same machine? Thanks in advance.
