Hello to subtitlers,

Do any of you know whether Swift Create by Softel/Miranda is compatible with Windows 10 ?
My old computer (Windows 7) switched to Windows 10 without my consent, and I am worried my work PC will do the same eventually.
I work with Swift v6.054, if that helps.

Thank you for your answers.

PS: I'd call the hotline, but since they merged with Grass Valley, they are a little bit difficult to reach.

Slightly off-topic perhaps, but if you still have the following folder on your computer:

C:\Windows.old

… you might still be able to revert back to Windows 7!

Thank you, but... Jun 15, 2016

Thank you for the information on how to stop Windows 10, but I'm afraid I'm not a IT specialist and I don't like messing with the programs in my computer.
I am just wondering if Swift is compatible with Windows 10.

It does work Jun 28, 2016

Hi, Faustine,

I've been using Swift (V6 & V8) with Windows 10 for a few months now with no major issues. I've actually had more problems with V8 due to the usual insufficient testing before release and lack of support after!

V6 still works as well as ever though.
