Issue

Can the DigitalSentry server be upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • DSNVR
  • DS Xpress 
  • DSRealVue
  • DS1000

Cause

Microsoft’s planned termination of support for the Microsoft Windows XP operating system  

Resolution

Updating the DigitalSentry server from Windows XP to Windows 7 is a non-tested and non-supported configuration. Pelco does not support upgrading  any pre-DSSRV units to Windows 7 due to the hardware and driver limitations of these systems.
