* Microsoft’s DLC Interface and
Windows XP Policy
According to Microsoft’s web site, the DLC protocol is not available in Windows XP and support for the DLC protocol has been discontinued in Windows XP. However, a Windows XP version of the DLC protocol is available free for download, although the DLC protocol may not work properly with Windows XP and Microsoft does not support the DLC protocol with Windows XP. As a result of Microsoft’s policy, CQ solutions using the DLC protocol under Windows XP may be limited. CQ does not claim that the DLC version of its solution will run error-free or without incidents in Windows XP, only that CQ software support provided by CQ for DLC connections running in Windows XP is subject to and limited by Microsoft’s policy for running DLC connections in Windows XP.
