Windows Operating System
All FinishLynx software and plug-ins are developed for the Windows operating system. Therefore, all computers used by FinishLynx operators must be running some version of Windows. FinishLynx is not compatible with Apple, iOS, Android, or Linux operating systems. We don’t recommend you try to port the FinishLynx software to another operating system.
FinishLynx is compatible with all modern versions of Windows, including: 98, Me, NT4, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8+, 10, and 11. If you plan to use FinishLynx with Windows 8, please review the Windows 8 compatibility information provided here.
