32-bit Windows Support

Important Reminder: Andar Software will no longer support Windows 32-bit as of January 2020.

As Andar Software continues to grow and take advantage of new technology, we find it more challenging to support old technology. We're currently planning to upgrade Andar/360's internal engine which only supports 64-bit computers — and we'll be moving to this technology in January 2020. As a result, Andar/360 will only run on 64-bit computers beginning with version 2020.01. (Older versions of Andar/360 will continue to work on both 32-bit and 64-bit computers.)

As such, it's an excellent time for you to make an inventory of your computers. The “System” settings on your computers will hopefully show “System type: 64-bit Operating System.” You can also go to AndarSoftware.com/MyInfo to see if any 32-bit machines used Andar/360 in the last month. You'll only see an alert on this page if you have 32-bit machines.

Take Advantage of These Enhancements

Product enhancements are a critical aspect of any technological solution that's available to customers. Enhancements not only signify growth for a product, but they (more importantly) also make customers' use of the product more effective and enjoyable.

At Andar, we've always released product enhancements twice a year, and we'll continue this trend. We're hard at work developing the product and want YOU to know all the great details ahead of time. To keep you informed, we now have a product roadmap webpage.

If you attended the 2019 Users Group Conference, you got a sneak peek of the roadmap during the Wednesday keynote. The page is now available to all customers. Visit it to see the enhancements that will be of benefit to you. Click on an enhancement bubble of interest to read the specific project details.
