Back to home MRT hardware and software compatibility lists (HCL/SCL)
 Brief introduction of compatibility lists (To find it easily later, you can put it into favorite)
MRT Hardware Compatibility List provides the computer hardware environment that is fully compatible with MRT software and hardware confirmed by strict test. Hardware in the list can be fully compatible with MRT and display its features to the best. MRT Software Compatibility List provides the computer software environment that is fully compatible with MRT software and hardware confirmed by strict test. Software in the list can coexist with MRT without conflict.

MRT Software & Hardware Incompatibility list provides the software and hardware environment in which MRT cannot work normally. Software and hardware in incompatibility list will cause MRT unable to work normally. Users should avoid installing or using MRT in list incompatible software or hardware environment.

MRT Lab is devoted to improving MRT tools and making MRT compatible with various software and hardware environment. So this list is upgraded constantly. Before purchasing and using MRT, users should read Hardware & Software Incompatibility List carefully to ensure MRT be used properly.
