Rebex Time is also known to work on Windows 8, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP3, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Embedded Standard 2009 and Windows Embedded POSReady 2009. However, these platforms already reached end-of-life (most of them many years ago), which means we cannot guarantee support for Rebex Time on these operating systems.

It also supports .NET Standard 2.0 on .NET Core 2.1. Support for .NET Standard 2.0 on Universal Windows Platform (build 16299 or higher) and Xamarin.Mac (version 6.0 or higher) is experimental.
- Visual Studio with Xamarin.iOS 13.10 or later
- iOS 10.2 or later
To target Xamarin.iOS platform, reference .NET Standard 2.1 binaries.

Legacy edition of Rebex Time for the following platforms is available as a separate product:

Legacy platforms are platforms that are no longer covered by our Standard Support, but have not yet reached End of Life. For details, see the following KB articles:

- Windows Embedded CE 6.0

Please note .NET Compact Framework is a legacy platform, which means that Rebex Time for .NET CF is available as a separate product with different lifecycle and pricing.
Due to popular demand, we will continue to provide and maintain binaries for .NET Compact Framework 3.5 until 2023-10-10, as long as your legacy support contract remains active. However, support for these binaries is no longer included in the Rebex Support Contract.
