Windows XP Compatibility - Engineering Assistant (EngAsst) v2.5.0.0 and the next releases of the PennDOT Engineering Programs are not compatible with Microsoft Windows XP operating system.

On April 8, 2014, Microsoft officially discontinued support of Windows XP, meaning they will no longer provide security updates and bug fixes. Consequently, it was decided that Windows XP would no longer be included in the list of supported platforms for subsequent releases of all PENNDOT Engineering Software and Windows XP compatibility will no longer be verified.

PENNDOT's Engineering Assistant (EngAsst) Version 2.5.0.0, the Graphical User Interface (GUI) that works with all PENNDOT Engineering Programs, is now available. The program was updated to use the Microsoft .NET platform version 4.5 which required changes to the interface between EngAsst and the Engineering Programs. As a result, all new engineering program releases after this date will not run with EngAsst v2.4.0.0 or earlier. EngAsst v2.4.0.6 and v2.4.0.9 will run, but requires using an alternate Run option. Therefore, it is highly recommended that all EngAsst users upgrade to v2.5.0.0.

NOTE: EngAsst v2.5.0.0 is not compatible with Windows XP.

Consultants and others who have a current license for any version of EngAsst are eligible for a free upgrade to Version 2.5.0.0. Please fill out an Update Form and e-mail it to PennDOT at PenndotBisEngineer@pa.gov. The Update Form and the Order Form are located on the Ordering/Updating section. Once the Update form is received, an e-mail will be sent with download instructions. The new installation will require a License Key that will be provided in the e-mail.
