*NOTE: The .NET-2.0 framework must be present on the Windows-XP computer running AstroDigital.Net. On Windows-Vista, Windows-7 or Windows-8 computers the .NET framework is preinstalled per default. On Mac or LinuX computers the Mono-2.x framework is required to run the software. Although AstroDigital.Net runs very stable in Windows on both .NET and Mono frameworks, we observe some instability issues when using the Night-Vision-Mode or the integrated internet browser on Mac and LinuX.
