Third-party controls

Our testing so far has been encouraging with most third-party controls on Windows 10. However, third-party controls do remain a potential concern with AVR 5.1. Their behavior is beyond our control so if they have issues there isn't anything we can do about those controls.

Customers using third-party controls will need to test their apps vigilantly. One of the sticky issues here is that the ActiveX vendor may be out of business. Mabry and Graphics Server are simply gone. Sheridan was bought by Component Source and they still sell the popular Sheridan ActiveThreed controls, but with a caveat on their Web page that says:

"Please note that this product is no longer supported by the publisher, so it is no longer eligible for product support or maintenance."

Graphics Server control

It has worked in our tests so far, but the AVR Classic graph control was licensed from Graphics Server and which is now out of business. It's quite likely that the graph control will continue to work with Windows 10 and the latest Windows Servers, but if it doesn't, you'll need to find a workable alternative.

Software Requirements

The following are required:

Windows 10 or 11 Professional. Windows Server 2016 and up.
