If your software is not listed…
► I may not have the information
► The software is too old and not supported
► It is part of a software publisher that has many offering (Adobe by example)

I will update the list periodically.

Your input will be deleted once I use it to update the list. This is not an indication of disagreement, but the desire to keep this thread as short as possible. Note that I keep a 'thing to do' post so that I do not get lost… (Absent minded and all that)

When giving me a title, please give me at least a link to the software publisher so that I can visit it and check the requirements.

Software made for smartphones are not listed. Not sure if they ever will be, either.
Plug-ins and add-ons are usually software specific. I may list them later on in a different thread.
