Can I mix Windows versions in my system?

When setting up a WATCHOUT system it is imperative that all servers run the same version of WATCHOUT, but what about Windows?

We recommend using either Windows 7 or Windows 10 LTSB (tweaked according to our tweaking lists), see more info about Windows 10 here https://knowledge.dataton.com/knowledge/watchout#operating-system-windows

However, you may find yourself in a situation where your display servers are running different versions of Windows OR perhaps your production computer is running on Windows 7 whereas your display servers are running on Windows 10. No worries!

Mixing servers with different versions of Windows in the same system is no problems, as long as you make sure they are all tweaked to ensure stabile performance and running the same version of WATCHOUT.
