"Legacy" Cameras With New Version Of Exacqvision

I am a bit confused as to why a camera that works in Exacq 4.x potentially doesn't work in new versions of Exacq. I am fully aware that cameras stop being supported by the manufacturer, but if Exacq has a working camera/camera files (dll files, etc...) for a previous server version, why not keep those files available for newer server releases?

The issue I'm running into is that sites have 20+ working cameras, of course a bit dated, and when a new server is installed (with updated Exacq sever software), the "legacy" cameras don't work and now new cameras need to be purchased.

Also, I am aware that vulnerabilities could exist for those legacy cameras, which is a big concern, but there are other things that can be done on the network to minimize access to those cameras other than the Exacq server to record the camera feed.

Thanks.
