I've got the situation where the software I need to run barely has a windows 7 version, so I can only imagine how long it will be until they come out with a win 10 version! This is point of sale software & not exactly dealing with the sharpest tools in the shed, so setting up a VM type scenario isn't really an option.
I am open to suggestions!
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
