ShellBoost supports Windows Vista and higher. It only supports the Shell functions corresponding to the Windows version it’s installed on. For example, the File On-Demand feature is only supported on Windows 10 version 1709 (or “Fall Creators Update”) and higher (and on NTFS-formatted drives)

The .NET side of ShellBoost binaries is compiled with .NET Framework 4.6.2. It can be used with any tool that supports that version of .NET or a higher one. It’s compiled as “Any CPU” so it supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.

All samples are developed using Visual Studio, but Visual Studio is not a requirement to use ShellBoost.

Windows XP is not supported.
