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.
