Notes On 64 Bit Operating Systems (OS):

You need to make sure that you have all hardware drivers when you use a 64 bit operating system.  Many drivers for 32 will not work for 64 bit OS.   Many applications will still not work on Vista 64.  Make sure that you and/or your IT staff are aware of this before you upgrade your computers.

User Account Control: This may need to be turned to low or turned off to access some printers on the network.

Remote Desktop/Virtual Machines/Terminal Services:

The Compounder does work for remote desktop/terminal services and/or virtual machines.  However these technologies must be supported at the pharmacy level by a knowledgeable IT staff.
