New System Requirements
As of 2020.1, the following operating systems are no longer supported for use by the Security Controls console:
•Windows 7 SP1
•Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
A new version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 – 2019 is available, so this will likely be identified as missing during the prerequisite check of the upgrade process.
For a complete list of requirements for the console, your agentless clients and your agent-based clients, see System Requirements.

In addition, the service account used for background operations must be a member the db_owner role. If your account is a member of the db_securityadmin and db_accessAdmin roles, the database upgrade tool will automatically attempt to map and configure the required roles for you.
