Windows 10 upgrade?

PostTue Jun 02, 2015 10:46 am

Today I received an offer from Microsoft for a free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 when it is released on July 29.

Microsoft tech support says that the 64-bit Home edition upgrade from 7 to 10 will allow installing more than the current max of 16 GB RAM.

When should I install the Windows 10 upgrade, to remain compatible with Hauptwerk? Will it affect Hauptwerk's function or performance in any way?

Working with Hauptwerk is one thing and Martin has indicated very reasonably that they cannot test that until it is released, after end of July.
However I think the other problem will be the various driver availability for the sound cards and other equipment that is in the setup. For instance I was using an EMU404 for sound and that got left behind when Window 8 came out.
