Inbox Notifier is fully tested on Windows 7 desktop (SP1) and on a Windows 10 laptop.

Many other Windows operating systems may work, like Windows 8/8.1/Server, but are not extensively tested for the moment. Regarding the .NET Framework version, some operating systems like Windows Vista/XP are no longer supported.


To ensure a stable running of Inbox Notifier, you need to have some requirements setted on your machine.

  1. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 minimum required

Note that this version of the .NET Framework evolve in time: the application cares about system security and having one of the latest .NET version is very important for the final user. By default, if you don't have the required version installed, the application will display a message and propose to download the specified version on the Microsoft official site.


Setup installer

The setup installer contains both 32 bits (x86) and 64 bits (x64) versions: this is the better way to install Windows application and allow you to cleanly install/uninstall the application with ease.

Note that you will need administrator rights to properly complete the installation.

History versions

You can grab an old version of the application in the Github version history: keep in mind that the alpha/beta versions are just "pre-releases" and are not "production environment" ready. Portable versions are no longer available since official 1.0 release. Some installers may no longer working due to the OAuth client secret key revocation.
