What is the minimum version of Logger Pro/Lite I can use with my hardware?

Logger Pro 3 and Logger Lite have had many different versions over the years. Vernier has added support for many new interfaces and Microsoft has released new versions of Windows. While there are versions of the software fully supporting Windows XP through Windows 10, earlier versions may not support newer operating systems and newer versions may not support older operating systems. Keep in mind that it is a free upgrade from any version of Logger Pro 3 to the latest version and Logger Lite is free. Updates can be downloaded here:

Sensors, (order code ends in BTA or BTD) are not mentioned here. They usually have a minimum version as well, although they can often be made to work on older versions.

A chart of which version number of Logger Pro is recommended for each operating system is available at:
