Upcoming IMPAX Legacy System Impacts:

 The DI architecture for IMPAX requires an upgrade that cannot run on windows XP; therefore, all workstations with IMPAX must be upgraded to Win7. The IMPAX client runs locally on the workstation while Xero Viewer can work from anywhere because it is a web based application that you access through a URL.
