Compatibility Guide

Quuppa software is tested most extensively on Linux and so Quuppa recommends the use of Linux for Quuppa systems wherever possible. In some cases, the software is also tested on other OS versions. This document shows an overview of the OS versions that to date have been tested and verified with the following Quuppa software:

  • Quuppa Positioning Engine (QPE)

  • Quuppa Site Planner (QSP)

  • Quuppa Data Player (QDP)

As the user interface may vary depending on the platform, Quuppa recommends running the system on platforms that have been tested and verified by Quuppa.

Tested Versions

In the table below, you will find the setups that Quuppa has tested for running the Quuppa software. Using the latest tested versions will give you access to the latest features for optimising your project. The table is intended to be used as a rough guide for users setting up a new Quuppa system or updating an existing one (with the exception of Development Kit, which should only be updated using the in-built Update Controller functionality).

For Quuppa project deployment, Quuppa firmly recommends that only Quuppa Approved Tags and/or Quuppa Tested Devices will be used. Quuppa supports projects containing Quuppa Approved Tags, Tested Devices tags and emulated smart devices, e.g. smartphones and handheld scanners. The Quuppa smart device emulation library can be found here:

Using non-tested third party tags (i.e. emulated tags) in a Quuppa project remains at customer's sole risk and customer's own support.
