Just saw this on a forum on the internet that Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 by 2020. Has anyone else seen any definite date on this?

Thanks, Clint, means that JTS will probably no longer support it sometime next year. Sad to see the older OS's go away as the new one (10) is a real can of worms. I get the idea that MS was desperate to release Windows 10 and can't own up that they have a real problem on their hands. Guess Windows 11 is next, right?

(but be sure to read Rich Hamilton's response to this ... and I meant to say 2020 and not next year .... but this has been rendered null and void by Rich's reply ....)

I never read anything definite about that, other than this would be according to Microsoft's operating schedule for OS support cycles - but, that they had made exceptions to this arbitrary date range, notably with XP.

I would not consider it anywhere near written in stone until I see it directly from Microsoft -naturally ymmv.

Too funny, Clint! One can only hope. We all will be using Linux or Mac OS.

I foolishly upgraded to Windows 10 and it has not been a great experience.. :displeased:

My old HPS games still work on it but my even older Battleground/Talonsoft games don't. That alone makes a retrograde to Windows 7 a must.. :D

The Matrix Battleground collections work on Windows 10. FYI for you, Ralf.

Each set includes all of the games for each series. Thus for the Nap series the download/installer has the NIR/PTW/BGW games. Same for the ACW games.

Not even close...we just dropped support for XP and it was end of life in 2014 from Microsoft. JTS will be supporting Win 7 for quite a while to come. 7 & 10 are the only two viable OS's Microsoft has at the moment.

Glad to hear that, Rich. I know that the XP thing happened due to the builds using newer version of software. Hoping that that doesn't happen for the Win 7 folks for some time to come.
