Supported Operating Systems

Currently unsupported

  • Windows 98 working previously by recent versions don't register correctly.
  • Windows NT4? needs a different compiler (e.g. MingW) to avoid unwanted dependencies.
  • Windows 95? needs a different compiler (e.g. MingW) to avoid unwanted dependencies.

See Supported Operating Systems for more information.


Internet Explorer 5.5 or greater (may work with 5.01 but required SHRegGetPath() function seems broken).

For Windows 9x, the  Microsoft Layer for Unicode (MSLU, aka Unicows).

If you want to build Swish yourself, see Build Requirements for more information.
