Windows 10?

Postby [Q] on Thu Jul 25, 2019 6:45 am

Hey guys, I purchased my computer in 2014 or 2015 and it's running Windows 7 but I think they were offering free upgrades to Windows 10 at the time.

I've been hearing about how all Windows 7 users need to upgrade soon and if anyone can shed some light on how or what I need to do, I would appreciate it.

Also, will I have any issues with program compatibility if I try to use programs that I've already installed on my computer? Or will I need to uninstall and reinstall when I'm up on 10?

Q, afaik you shouldn't need to reinstall anything if you do an upgrade from windows 7, there have been some issues with older programs but running them in compatability mode should take care of that if needed.

here is a link where you can get a windows 10 pro cd key for $14.00, i used them to purchase mine and it is legit and works, you will have to download the windows 10 installation package do an upgrade install and then activate it with the windows 10 key, but at least this should save you a ton of money on it

A jwin said, it should be relatively painless. One of the reasons I've been holding off is that Windows 10 doesn't support an old anti-piracy driver, which makes it difficult to run older CD games that used that protection. With support for Windows 7 ending next year, I'm going to have to bite the bullet and look for some workarounds.
