    Hi Gerald,

    Thanks for the message.
    In the requirements I read Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise edition is needed.
    Is an installation on Windows 10 home not supported/possible? If not will this become available later?

    Kind regards,

    Hello Gerald,

    This is good news!

    Is the change of Character_Set supported?

    Or is there a way to switch to WE8ISO8859P15 or <code><span class="pln"> WE8MSWIN1252 before performing the installation?</span>

    Thanks in advance
