X2Go Client is currently only released as a 32-bit x86 build. Both 32-bit x86 and 64-bit x86 versions of Windows are supported via this build.
These versions of Windows without the latest (specified) service pack / major update may be compatible, but are rarely (if ever) tested. They are not officially supported.
Corresponding server versions of Windows are also supported, but receive minimal testing:
Any incompatibility or bug with a specific version of Windows should be reported via our bug-tracker.
Deprecated versions of Windows are going to be dropped once a technical obstacle arises.
