Windows 8 Considerations

Windows 8 has a significantly different look and feel than its predecessor, Windows 7.    The versions of Windows 8 and 8.1 that run on desktop and laptop computers, generally speaking, will run most software that is compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7  (but not necessarily Windows XP).

Windows 8, like Windows 7, when installed on new computers, is almost always a 64 Bit edition.

Use the chart below to determine which version of our products run on a desktop or laptop computer running Windows 8.  Only the current versions of our products as noted below are supported on Windows 8.

The versions noted are also compatible with Windows "tablet" and "2 in 1" hybrid laptop/tablet computers like the Microsoft Surface Pro - as long as they run the "Pro" version of Windows 8.  (Some early Surface tablets DO NOT run software written for previous versions of Windows )
