TinyTERM AX for Web Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why has TinyTERM AX for Web been discontinued?

A: TinyTERM AX is based around ActiveX controls that only run in Internet Explorer version 8 or higher. With the release of Windows 10, Internet Explorer and ActiveX have both been deprecated, meaning no further development will happen. This limits the usefulness and lifetime of TinyTERM AX. Active development on TinyTERM AX ended with the release of version 4.11.0 in May 2017.

Century Software has released TinyTERM Plus for Web to replace TinyTERM AX. Because it does not rely on ActiveX, TinyTERM Plus for Web will run in any modern browser, on any desktop operating system. Users are not tied to Windows or Internet Explorer when using TinyTERM Plus for Web.
