I'm a little confuse. I thought that Windows 2003 support ends on version 6.1.x but in release notes you state that in order to install 7.0.0 on windows 2003 and Windows XP we need to reboot. Is this comment valid and Windows 2003/XP is supported by agent 7.0.0 or someone forgot to remove it from documentation or mention that these systems are no longer supported in this version?
