There are two types of computers called the “Microsoft Surface”, they look very similar but are different under the hood:

  • Surface RT and Surface 2 run Windows RT and Logger Pro is not compatible with Windows RT.
  • Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2, and Surface Pro 3 and other tablets running full versions of Windows 8 are compatible with Logger Pro. The Logger Pro software has not been optimized for finger usage on touch devices at this present time, but the Surface Pro models includes a stylus (“Pro Pen”) which works well.
