Warrior 8 databases cannot be read by previous versions of Warrior, but Warrior 8 can read older databases.
The minimum operating system supported is Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Known issues on Windows XP:
Microsoft has updated the list of third-party certification authorities that are trusted by Windows but on Windows XP this update is not installed automatically. The user must download and install the update package (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931125).
Without this update, Warrior programs may give an 0x800b010a error when starting as the system is unable to verify the digital signature of certain system files. Alternatively, the user can install the two intermediate certificates (primary and secondary) which are found in the Warrior Bin folder. These give an alternative path back to a trusted root certificate.
Removed presentation options for 'Make window bigger' and 'Bulge factor'. Warrior 7 plots will match Warrior 8 plots by setting both of those parameters to 0 in Warrior 7.
