Release Notes for Windows/macOS version Examplify 3.3

Examplify 3.3.2

  • Adds support for macOS 14 Sonoma

Examplify 3.3.0 Overview


  • Remove Support for Windows 10 version 21H2
    • With Examplify 3.3, we are retiring support for Windows 10 version 21H2 OS. By policy, we support the three most recent versions of the Windows and Mac OS. This maximizes application performance and exam integrity by ensuring that users are on the more up-to-date OS versions.
  • Support for Intel 13th Gen Processors
  • Support for Windows 11 22H2
  • This version supports Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 11 22H2, which is expected to release on September 20, 2022.
  • We have identified an incompatibility issue with the Smart App service included in this version 22H2 of the Windows 11 operating system. However, this issue only exists only when the version operating system is newly installed on a device, such as when:
    • A clean installation of the Windows 11 22H2 operating system is performed on a device
    • A device is newly purchased with Windows 11 22H2
  • Earlier versions of Examplify will not be supported and will fail to run on newly installed versions of Windows 11 22H2. 
  • It is important to note that this does not impact users who upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 or users who upgrade from Windows 11 21H2 to 22H2.
