by Technical Evangelist on ‎05-10-2019 12:29 PM (390 Views)

As an update to this Announcement provided in April, 2018:


...Hexagon Geospatial would like to make the following clarifications and updates:


The release of ERDAS IMAGINE 2018 (v16.5.x) is the final version of ERDAS IMAGINE (and the Spatial Modeler SDK)  that will provide Supported status for the following Operating Systems:


  • Windows 7 SP1 or higher, Professional and Ultimate (64-bit)
  • Windows 8 (Standard), Professional and Enterprise (64-bit)
  • Windows 8.1 (Standard), Professional and Enterprise (64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit)

However it should be noted that Microsoft is ceasing support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 on January 14, 2020. Consequently ERDAS IMAGINE 2018 (and prior versions) will no longer be considered Supported on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 after January 14, 2020.


ERDAS IMAGINE 2019, to be released in Q4, 2019, will be Supported on the following operating systems only:


  • Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2016 (64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2019 (64-bit)
