    I'm using the COM version of the analytics in Delphi. (I'm still waiting for the Delphi header file for the Win32 version) The COM version requires .NET 2.0, and Windows 8 doesn't come with .NET 2.0 pre-installed. I think it comes with 4.0 and 4.5. Can you provide a new version of the library that requires 4.0 or 4.5 instead of 2.0? Thanks Erick

    Hi Erick We are compiling our library to .NET 2.0 as a lowest common denominator to ensure that (almost) all platforms can utilize the library regardless of which .NET runtime they use (as long as Microsoft remains backwards compatible). I am not aware of this being broken for Windows 8, I would expect the installed runtime to simply host the library as a COM server as is. Are you experiencing something else on your machine? Let me know what issues you more specifically are encountering and we can work from there. Cheers Soren EQATEC Team

    Hi Erick Just did a quick search and verified that there has been a change in the 4.0 runtime behavior (when on 4.0 is installed) since it will only load assemblies compiled against 2.0 if the explicitly opt-in to be loaded by the 4.0 runtime. This is done by adding a supportruntime attribute to the config file of the executable. This config file is a first class citizen for a .NET program but may not be as intuitive when used via COM. I believe you can find some guidance by following the links provided in the section on COM setup in this article: http://support.eqatec.com/entries/21093363-Proxy-on-NET Hope this helps, let me know of any issues Cheers Soren EQATEC Team

    Thank you, I'll try this and let you know if I need more help. BTW, what about a Delphi header for the Win32 native library? That would be the best for Delphi developers.

    Hi Erick No, we do not currently have Delphi headers available. I realize that it would make life a little easier for Delphi developers but unfortunately you need to manage the integration with our library directly at this point. /Soren EQATEC Team
