BTW, one other major thing for Windows 10: I run on a Microsoft Surface Book
with dual monitors. That alone is worth getting FM2017 as it allows dialogs
(and the software) to correctly size on the displays I use. That means that
when I move things from my 3000/2000 resolution tablet to a 1280 or 1024 or
whatever resolution other monitor, they size "right". So I don't end up
squinting at one and being bombarded by the size of the other.

If you DO move to Windows 10, AND you go with the high resolution it (and
computers that work with it) run, then explore 2017.

There are many people running older versions of FrameMaker on Windows 10.
Adobe introduced "official" support for Windows 10 in FrameMaker 2015,
Update 1.
However, this only means, that Adobe has certified FM 2015, Update 1, for
Windows 10. Older versions are not certified for Windows 10, and therefore
there is no official support for running older versions on Windows 10.

Please note, that there are certain changes in Windows 10, that have or can
have an impact on FrameMaker depending on the use case. Areas where Windows
has an impact on FrameMaker can be e.g. installation, rights management
related issues, fonts, font rendering, and printing.

Hi All,

Thank you for the responses. Yes, from my extensive googling and pounding
through the forums, it does seem that FM 10 and 12 both run just fine on
Windows 10. And based on the statement that I pulled from HowToGeek, that
would make sense; however, as only FM2015 is explicitly called out as being
compatible with Win 10, I am understandingly a bit hesitant, but I probably
won't have a choice. 

Carrier pigeon anyone?

Thanks!

FM 10 and 12 run on my Windows 10 system with no issues. Not sure about
Acrobat as I avoid it when I can other than to convert files to PDF or to
read them. That works fine, but I don't know about other functions in there.

All,

 

I might be forced to upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 Ultimate. (The
reasons are not important.) I have FM 10, FM 12 and Adobe Acrobat Pro XI
currently installed. Here is a comment that I found on HowToGeek's website:

****************************************************************************
****************************************************************************
*********

Microsoft's Windows 10 seems like a big change. The version number alone is
a big leap from Windows 7, and most of the default apps are new-style
"universal apps," not traditional desktop apps.

But, if you depend on traditional Windows desktop applications, you
shouldn't worry. Don't let Windows 10's new look fool you - if an
application ran on Windows 7, it should also run on Windows 10.

****************************************************************************
****************************************************************************
*****

 

But, is this true? Will FM 10 and 12 and Adobe Acrobat XI run on Windows 10?
(64-bit system). Have any of you had experience (good/bad/indifferent)
running these programs on Windows 10?

 

 

Thanks!
