Landonline software requirements

Landonline runs within a Citrix session on a Windows browser, so your choice of operating system, Internet browser and Citrix Receiver can directly affect your user experience.

Please note that this software is not part of the Landonline Application, however is required for access to Landonline.

Windows operating system

Options we recommend as at 1 October 2019:

  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 10

We recommend you upgrade your operating system (OS) if using these products:

  • Windows XP:  Microsoft support ended in April 2014. We strongly recommend you upgrade to a later OS.
  • Windows Vista: : We suggest you upgrade to a later OS because the Landonline user base is very small (approx 2%).  Our support desk has limited knowledge of this OS.
  • Windows 7: Please upgrade to SP1 or a later OS
  • Windows 8.0: Please upgrade to 8.1 or a later OS.

For Virtual Desktop (VDI) environments please refer to Setting up Landonline in a Virtual Desktop (VDI) environment.

Landonline is not designed to work with other Operating Systems such as Linux, Unix, BSD, OS X, Chromium, IOS, etc.  Users may find that they can get various components to work, and while Landonline does not block such activity, it is not supported, nor encouraged.

Windows Internet browser

Options we recommend as at 1 October 2019:

  • Edge (the browser that comes with Windows 10)
  • Internet Explorer 11

Other options in use by some Landonline users

  • Chrome: Currently used by some Landonline users but may require some technical expertise or IT services support to run Landonline.
  • Internet Explorer - Metro: This is the version of Internet Explorer that opens when in Windows 8’s Metro interface. Some limited testing suggests this should work however you may prefer the desktop versions of Internet Explorer.
  • Firefox

We strongly recommend you upgrade if using Internet Explorer 7 and earlier. Please upgrade to a later version as known security issues exist. Note that IE 6 will no longer connect to Landonline due to updated security protocols.
