Platforms for OPC development
Two major development platforms are supported by QuickOPC for OPC coding:
QuickOPC, as an OPC client, works on Microsoft Windows. The OPC server you are connecting to, however, can run on any operating system or platform, as long as it exposes the right communication interfaces. This is especially common with OPC Unified Architecture servers; many of them run on Linux, or various embedded devices and systems.
Supported operating systems range from Windows Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows 8.1 with Update, Windows 10, and Windows Server 2012 R2.
Both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows operating systems are supported.
Note that while QuickOPC requires .NET Framework 4.5.2 or later, in some cases it does not have to be specifically installed, because
- .NET Framework 4.6 is included in Windows 10.
