Windows OS Support and Deprecation

Hello everyone,


We wanted to ensure that everyone was aware of the Windows Operating Systems that are supported by Rise Vision. Microsoft’s mainstream support of Windows 7 ended January 13, 2015, and extended support ends January 13,2020, which you can learn more about here.  We will be officially supporting and testing with Windows 7 until January 31, 2018.

Due to the popularity of Windows 7 and poor adoption of Windows 8, we do not support Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.

Our recommended Windows environment is Windows 10 Professional. To the best of our knowledge, the Rise Vision Player should work on all editions of Windows 10. If an issue is reported that we cannot recreate in a Windows 10 Professional environment, our recommendation is to upgrade to Windows 10 Professional.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thanks!

Hey Robb! I haven't checked in a while - but has Rise created a Windows 10 settings optimization list somewhere?

Alex,

Actually, the Windows 10 installer takes care of most of the optimization for you, so there is no need to do any additional tweaks :)

Thanks!

Yes there is and plenty. The worst of them is 'Log-in' screen (not too hard to disable, but after some Windows update it got messed up if you have created PC user and at the same time had Windows account user attached). In addition, many other things must be disabled on software and even hardware level (this really depends on the PC).

Darius,

Good points,I didn't think of the auto login user issue, which is a good idea to set up if the machine starts to a login screen.

Just did the upgrade from Win 7 Pro 64 bit to Win 10 Pro 64 bit.

Did the whole via WiFi, a cabled network would have been faster but it happened fine with enough time.  

Went very well, seems solid from the restart even carried the auto-logon from Win 7 Pro.

Only issue I had was Monitor scaling was set by Win 10 install to 150%, had to change that back to 100% manually.

I like the new start-up after reboot with 5 second option to not start Rise Player  

Happy camper here, nice update process with minimal challenge and risk.
