Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000; Windows Server 2012, 2008, 2003, 2000 (64-bit or 32-bit) all supported.
NIC Configurator 2013 Trial version:
When using the trial version, you will only be able to display and change NIC settings for the first 25 computers in each domain, sorted ascendingly. However, all features are available for use.
When purchasing NIC Configurator 2013:
For each domain where you want NIC Configurator 2013 to detect and modify advanced network adapter settings in computers, you need to purchase the correct NIC Configurator 2013 Computer Access Licenses (CALs) to cover computers in that domain.
For instance, if you have a domain called “MYTEKSUPPORT.COM” and that domain has 500 computers in its Active Directory, you need to purchase “NIC Configurator 2013” with 500 CALs, which covers the first 500 computers in that AD domain (sorted ascendingly).
If you purchase “NIC Configurator 2013” with 250 CALs for a domain that has 500 computers, NIC Configurator 2013 will be able to detect and modify advanced network adapter settings for the first 250 computers (sorted ascendingly).
