Running Syncrify Client on Windows XP and 2003
The latest Syncrify Client uses JRE 1.8, which is not supported on Windows XP and 2003. As a result,
the latest version of Syncrify Client will not work on Windows 2003 or XP.
Use the following steps install an older version of Syncrify Client.
- Uninstall existing Syncrify Client. Make sure to remove every file from the $INSTALL_DIR, which is typically
C:\Program Files\SyncrifyBackupClient. This ensures the newer JRE is completely removed.
- Download build 749 from the following links:
- Build 749 uses JRE 1.7, which works on Windows 2003.
- Files for Syncrify Client are stored in two locations: Installation Folder and
Data Folder. Every
configuration is stored in the Data Folder. Therefore, reinstalling Syncrify does not make changes to any configuration
and your backup profiles will stay intact.
