ESdat Desktop

The current version of ESdat Desktop (Version 5) will continue to be supported indefinitely on Windows 10 and will continue to receive updates. Support beyond Windows 10 is yet to be determined.

Users with Access databases will need to continue to use the current Version 5 of ESdat Desktop, and should plan to migrate to either ESdat Server or ESdat Online prior to the end of life for Windows 10.
