Extender 2020 requires Sage 300 2020, and operates with 3rd party modules written in the Sage 300 SDK. Notes functionality requires Orchid Notes. Workflow User licences are required to access Extender Workflow functionality or to access Extender Logs via screen icons.
Where scripting is required, Python is installed as part of Extender. If you have another version of Python installed it has no effect on Extender - Extender will use its own version. (Python is a widely used, general-purpose, high-level, open-source scripting language.)
