Abstract

All versions stated of an environment presume the initial release of a 3rd party product without any need for patches/service packs or equivalent terms unless stated. Equally, unless stated, we presume that the product has not been configured to disable new features (compatibility modes) and that all patches/service packs are upward compatible for our products.

Software Environments
The environments supported by Cognos Series 7 Version 5 products are listed below. They are listed as active, compatible or not supported. Environments denoted as active are the environments tested by Cognos.

Older releases of environments may transition from active to compatible over time as significant testing would have occurred in previous Cognos releases.
