There's been a lot of talk online about whether Trados 2011/2014/2015 is compatible with Windows 10 or not. Now that Windows 10 is out, has anyone tried?

No major problems Jul 30, 2015

That I've spotted so far. 2014 appears to work as it did before. 2011 starts up (haven't done anything else with it though). 2015 seems okay too - worth noting that when I upgraded to Windows 10, 2015 forgot it was licensed. I had to have SDL reset the license to get it activated again.

Deactivate Studio license before upgrading to Win 10 Jul 30, 2015

Good point, Ian.

Note for anyone reading this thread in the future:
Deactivate your Studio license whenever you make any major change to your computer, such as reformatting the hard disk, re-installing an operating system or installing a new O/S.

To deactivate a license, go to the Ribbon>Help>Product Activation>Deactivate

Thank you!

I was not aware Windows 10 was out yet as I expected a prompt to upgrade, but I will look into it.

I assume it is easy to do and re-activating works in the same way.

Slightly surprising Jul 30, 2015

Yes, absolutely.

It's only a little surprising, because the move from Windows 7/8.1 shouldn't count as too major - the Windows upgrade process manages to preserve all other apps/settings/licenses (or at least it did in my case) - so it's a pity that Studio didn't keep up. But by no means a disaster.
