The following versions of Windows are supported:

  • Windows 10 (64-bit version; LTSB, CBB and CB)

    Note: Office Timeline does not work on Windows 10 S. The add-in is functional on Windows XP and Windows Server but unsupported.  See here for more information.


The following 64-bit versions of Microsoft Office are supported:

  • Microsoft 365

Note: If you are still using 32 bit Office, our recommendation is to plan to migrate to 64-bit as soon as possible.

The following components are required:

  • .NET Framework 4.8.

  • the latest version Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable
  • Microsoft Edge WebView2 Runtime

The user should install with Administrator rights in order to have the most stable installation.
