Re: Windows 7
It did not automatically pick up the 2006/16 version.As I stated I had to do one of the things I described in my prior message.But remember I am NOT the one having the problems on this issue.
As for operating system yes Microsoft will continue to create new operating systems, it is their business.Yes they stop supporting the versions over time (usually without warning), it seems to be a industry standard among software makers.Basically it is so you buy the new versions and keep them in business. And for some applications it is better to have a new stand alone version than to do an upgrade.
The biggest problem is if the software creators aren't smart enough to be backward capable with EVERY version.Additionally some are not smart enough to also have a "classic" view option.Not everyone in the world wants change or to have to re-learn something they have been using 10 or 20 years.
