* Starting with the release of the 8.6.2 App Control Windows agent, Microsoft is no longer providing SHA-1 code signing for App Control releases. Moving forward, Microsoft will only provide SHA-2 code signing or App Control releases. For customers on Windows Server 2008 SP2, Windows 7 SP1, and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Microsoft provided an update providing SHA-2 support. This means customers on Windows Vista, Server 2008 SP0/SP1, Win7 SP0, and Server 2008R2 SP0 will no longer be able to install App Control following the 8.6.0 release as no such updates exist for them. We recommend customers apply the proper updates to their operating system.

A list of these Windows updates can be found here. More information on this change from Microsoft can be found here.

* App Control does support Windows 11 Bypass IO or CIMFS. We are currently working to provide support for these items in upcoming releases.

*App Control does not support Shared Clustered Volumes.

Hi debjay​,

(1) Is the Cb Defense sensor  '2.01',  a typo for '2.0.1'?

(2) Please update list with Cb Defense sensor for 3.2.0 version.

Thanks,

Haro

Done, thank you.

debjay​ will the doc be updated for supported Microsoft OS's?

Hi all,

I just want to confirm that, does Cb Defense sensor 2.1.0 really support Windows 10 April 2018 Update, but not Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

I assume Windows 10 April 2018 Update is supported with 3.0.1 or later only.

Regards,

  Haro

Hi point of clarification, currently I have Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows 7, and Windows XP machines in my environment on 8.0.0.2621 P7, will these be compatible with newly release version 8.1?

Is there somewhere I can find a list of what version numbers match each patch level? I have version 8.0.0.2621 but don't know what patch level that is.

Great question, please reference this doc for friendly names, 2621 is Patch 7

When was 8.0.0 build xxxx available, when was it released and what is its friendly patch name?

Why are all the CBR versions for Windows versions before the "Windows 10 October 2018 Update" up to version 6.1.9 and yet for "Windows 10 October 2018 Update", the version suddenly turns to v6.1.8+.

Is v6.1.9 not recommended for "Windows 10 October 2018 Update" yet then?

v6.1.9 is recommended for the Win10 October 2018 Update. This was a typo mistake on our part. Thanks!

@spandey Would it be possible to comment on the update that is made to the matrix? I am currently subscribed in UEX to this post for updates, but that only notifies you for comments.

For example, we missed that for Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Cb Protection was flipped from "In Progress" to " 8.1.0+" unless you can provide another method better receive the update/change. Thanks!

It would be great if there was a single downloadable file that contained the supported agent information for all operating systems.  

could you update the CbP version from 8.1.4 to 8.1.5 in the matrix? 

Good spot @chachu 

@djay or @gorlando  - Is this something you can amend please?

Thanks!

Updated matrix to include CBP 8.1.5

Cb Protection v8.1.8 released, please help update the table. thx 

Bump on updating this with latest versions of OSes and sensor versions.  Nearly every release document points to this thread as the source of truth.

Thanks!

Any plans for supporting Windows 10 2004?

@shyoon LTSB does have an underlying/ordinary Win 10 version (e.g. LTSB 2016 is Win 10 1607). Still, explicitly stating support of LTSB would be great. Anecdotally, if the Win 10 underlying version is supported, it seems to run & function. 

I saw that the servers agent's were updated to support 8.6.2 app control agent all the way back to Server 2003. Is that the same for Windows Desktop as well, the table just hasn't been updated at this point in time?

Also to make sure I'm reading this correctly, Windows XP can run the App Control agent 8.6.0 and still work as expected?

@tylerfleming Yes, you are reading the chart correctly. We still actively support XP with 8.6.0 / 8.6.2.
