New software stripe release for Windows 64-bit OS from Aculab, v6.7

15th June 2017

Aculab is pleased to announce the release of updated telephony software components, for Windows 64-bit OS, following successful QA testing. Equivalent Linux versions are currently being QA tested and will be released shortly. We strongly advise you to update to these new versions.

It should be noted that version 6.7 software is 64-bit only. The new stripe supports cumulative bug fixes and improvements, and includes the new licensing tools that were recently introduced with version 6.6 software.

Version 6.7 software supports the following 64-bit Windows OS platforms:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016
In addition, the 6.7 stripe release has been fully tested with the following VM environments:

  • VMWare vSphere ESXi
  • Microsoft Hyper-V 2012
The latest 6.7 full release supports the following media processing products from Aculab – Prosody S version 3, revision 3 Prosody X PCIe boards, and the Prosody X 1U chassis, both Enterprise and HA variants.

The updated telephony software components, together with release notes, are now available for download via the Aculab installation tool (AIT) which is available on the software downloads page of Aculab’s website.

Please note that we have also introduced a 64-bit version of the AIT and we advise the use of this new version for these 64-bit 6.7 packages.

Customers can download the software components using the AIT from the UK servers that host the software libraries now; the US-based servers will have the new components available from tomorrow.

Users of the AIT do not need a password and user name to run the installation package and download Aculab software. However, Aculab strongly recommends that users employ a unique, company specific user name and password. Please contact Aculab technical support via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to validate your user name and password.
