So Trados Studio 2014 (No SP) can be installed on XP machines with SDL support and Trados Studio 2014 SP1+SP2 can be installed on XP machines without SDL support.
I've heard that Trados Studio 2015 cant be installed on XP machines? Is this true?

So what will you do? say goodbye to your old good Windows XP?

Hi,

This is true and it's because Studio 2015 uses .NET 4.5 which is not available on WinXP. So we support Windows Vista, 7, 8/8.1 and we will support W10 once it is released.

Hi Paul.

Will there be compatibility issues with certain versions of Microsoft Office or other programs? I currently use 2010. Will installation of Studio 2015 result in automatic connection with Office (I mean no need for additional installation steps having to change things in Windows system or Microsoft Office? Thank you.

XP no longer supported by Microsoft Jun 23, 2015

Dear Linh,
XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, which means you are no longer receiving patches and, in effect, your computer is becoming less and less secure every day.
You might want to think about upgrading to Windows 7 (or even Windows 10, when it comes).

Rather upgrade to Windows 8 Jun 23, 2015

Owing to the fact that Windows 8 uses a lot less system resources than Windows 7, Windows 7 may be less likely to run well on a Windows XP machine than Windows 8.

Thanks, Mike.

I have been running both W7 and XP. W7 is on my Thinkpad latop and XP for my good and old Dell PC.

I've tried W8 and never liked it. W10 might be a different story, fast and elegant.

Don't XP users get a free upgrade to Windows 10? Jun 23, 2015

My PC that runs XP currently has a little icon sitting in the taskbar telling me I can get Windows 10 for free when it's released. Should solve the compatibility problem with Studio, no?

As far as I know only Windows 7 and Windows 8(.1) can be upgraded to Windows 10 for free! I already got the icon on my Win7 system .

Can you can send the captured screen of the task bar?

Be careful... Jun 23, 2015

Upgrading XP or W7 to W8, 8.1 or 10 requires that all software and drivers needs to be reinstalled. That can be extremely time consuming and you need to reset all of your settings for every program. Upgrading from W8 to W8.1 or 10 does not require all of the software to be reinstalled and all of the settings are saved.

If your XP is offering an upgrade to W10 I would go for it, when W10 is available.

Thanks

Hi All

I have come across a couple of XP users recently that have stated the same recently and it may be wise to err on the side of caution.
After checking MS websites and other sources, there does NOT seem to be any 'free' upgrade offers at all for XP users.
Only W10 Beta testers would appear to be eligible!
In regards to being cautious-
MS has not released any security packs for a while now and unless MS can qualify otherwise (that XP users are entitled to free upgrade) I would be wary of the origin of this message at this time.
