For the past 2 years TAO Solutions has been targeting .NET Framework version 4.0 for all its applications (client side and application server side) with the sole purpose of allowing our clients to run Windows XP if desired.

As previously announced, Microsoft ended support for Windows XP effective April 8th, 2014. TAO Solutions extended support of its products combined with Windows XP use until June 30th, 2014. Effective July 1st, 2014, mortgageHUB versions 3.x and secureHUB versions 2.x will target the latest .NET Framework version 4.5.x which will require at least Windows 7 SP 1 to be installed on end users computers and Windows Server 2008 SP 2 to be installed on the application servers running IIS.

These changes are planned as part of the next general available mortgageHUB release which is currently targeted for the end of August, 2014 and include the modifications to the NHA MBS required by CMHC to be implemented by November 1, 2014.

Note: Older versions of mortgageHUB (2.x) and Pool Maker/Pool Manager programs will continue to be supported on these older technologies. However, since these applications are certified to run on the latest technologies, it is advised that clients upgrade underlying Microsoft operating systems and Office products to ensure stability.

All currently released TAO Solutions products are compatible with Windows versions 7, 8 and 8.1, along with Office versions 2007, 2010 and 2013.

TAO Solutions is committed to working with all of our clients and partners to ensure this technology transition is as seamless as possible.
