  • The list of WRM-enlightened technologies appears to be the following (Quoted from Wikipedia).  The RMS Team Blog also appears to confirm this: -

    • Microsoft Office System 2003 - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook
    • Microsoft Office 2007 - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, InfoPath
    • Microsoft Office 2010 - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, InfoPath
    • Microsoft Office 2013 - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, InfoPath
    • Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook
    • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2003 (through the use of third party solutions such as those from Secure Islands, GigaTrust and Liquid Machines (acquired by Check Point))
    • Microsoft Visio 2007 and Project 2007 (through the use of third party solutions such as those from Secure Islands, GigaTrust and Liquid Machines)
    • Adobe Acrobat Reader (through the use of third party solutions such as those from Secure Islands, GigaTrust, FoxIt Software and Liquid Machines)
    • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
    • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2010, Secure Islands for SharePoint enhances RMS capabilities,
    • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2013
    • Exchange Server 2007
    • Exchange Server 2010
    • Exchange Server 2013
    • XPS (XML Paper Specification) v1.0
    • Internet Explorer (through use of the RM Add-on for IE)
    • IIS 6.0 (through the use of GigaTrust WebServer Add-on)

    As far as I can see, catering for PDF appears to need a third party add-on. I've seen Liquid Machines mentioned a few times in the past but I've never used it, so can't speak to its reliability or usefulness.
