Professional Operating Systems Consumer Operating Systems
Windows 11 Pro Windows 11 Home
Windows 10 Pro , Windows Server 2022, or Windows Server 2016/2019 Windows 10 Home

Note: Older versions of SES Software (e.g, v13, v12, v11, etc.) are not fully compatible with Windows 10/11 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.
