Windows 10 Free Upgrade

Being asked about Widows 10 and advising clients with Windows 7 or 8 not to upgrade if they have ACT installed for the time being. Is there an official statement on this  from Swiftpage as one would help? Have any ACT products been tested on Windows 10 etc.

I would like to know the answer to this as well.  Supported?  Untested?  Unsupported?  Anecdotal evidence?

Hi,

 

Currently Windows 10 is not supported per the system requirements. We will be updated to reflect when compatible, please check http://www.act.com/products/system/v17/premium/

 

Kind Regards,

Thanks for the information!  Would you anticipate that any compatibility issues which might arise would be resolved through a hotfix for V17, or would we need to buy something new?

FWIW ACT 16 premium works OK with Windows 10 home except the dreaded request to confirm your location for your phone on startup has reappeared.

I had to reboot a couple of times to restore synchronising a remote database on the W10 machine.

I'll keep you posted.

later...The Windows phone location request has also disappeared.

later again... I've just installed W10Pro on the master database PC. I had to restart  the SQL Server (ACT7)service and now all appears to be good.
