Software AG provides Natural support for the versions of the operating systems, TP monitors, database management systems and assemblers supported by their respective manufacturers. In general, when the provider of an operating system, TP monitor, database management system or assembler stops supporting a version of an operating system, TP monitor, database management system or assembler, Software AG will stop supporting that version of the operating system, TP monitor, database management system or assembler.
