Hello, I have some old DDE code and currently Zos api is used as a dynamic link. But for older version of Zemax, do we only need to use DDE or Zos api can be used regardless of the version of Zemax we use?

ZOS-API was first added to OpticStudio in 2015 I believe. And over the course of the years, we kept on implementing different features from the interface in the API. So actually it matters which version is used.
