Ple4Win and Windows 7
As you most likely know support for the Windows 7 operating system has ended on January 14, 2020. Users are strongly encouraged to change their operating system to Windows 10.
Up until now our experience is that in-place upgrades from Windows 7 (and Windows 8.x) to Windows 10 are still possible without the necessity of buying a Windows 10 license (i.e. a valid Windows 7/8.x license is still accepted as valid Windows 10 license). We can’t of course guarantee this, your mileage may vary…
What does the end of Windows 7 mean for for our users of Ple4Win?
Most important, Ple4Win does not suddenly stop working on computers still using Windows 7. Actually, the current version of the program has been developed and tested with both Windows 7 and Windows 10.
However, subsequent versions of the Ple4Win program are developed and tested using only Windows 10. But as long as the tools used to develop and run the program are not fundamentally changed, future versions of our program should still run on Windows 7 without problems.
Officially, us supporting Ple4Win on Windows 7 ended with the end of support for Windows 7. So from now on Ple4Win is only supported if used with Windows 8.1 (depreciated) or Windows 10, see the requirement page.
Which does of course not mean that we will not support users still using Windows 7. If you have a problem, please let us know, and we will look into it. However, should the underlying operating system turn out to be the problem, then most likely we will be unable to fix it. If the problem is in the program itself, we will handle it as a ‘normal’ issue.
Should Ple4Win really become incompatible with Windows 7 somewhere in the future, we will announce this on this website.
