OOPS!

OOPS!!


BREAKING NEWS: I've made my way further up the DataColor help-desk
tree and I have just been told by a more senior member that the new
Spyder 5 is not compatible with Windows ***7***. He has not yet
explained why.

I have told him that after more than a year of working satisfactorily
Spyder 4 suddenly started having the same problem in June this year.

I have asked him whether this problem extends to Windows 10. It will
be interesting to hear his answer.



He assures me it will run on Windows 10. So here goes ...

that can't be true.

windows 7 is currently the dominant windows version.

it would be incredibly stupid for it to not work on win7.

It's astonishingly inconvenient.

Maybe its an example of how far you can push things withot being sued.

Right now, I'm doing a backup.

Then I'm going to create a disk image.

Then I will try to install Windows 10.

Wish me luck.

I need more than luck. Having spent most of a day doing a backup etc I
find that all I have achieved is a place in the queue. At some stage
in the undefined future I will get a notification that my Windows 10
has arrived, by which time I will have to do my backup etc all over
again. :-(

Eric,

You might try an upgrade rather than a fresh install.

You don't need to wait, use the Media Creation Tool instead.

it's also astonishingly wrong.

click on the system requirements tab for whichever version you have
(not that it matters since they're all the same):

http://spyder.datacolor.com/portfolio-view/spyder5express/
http://spyder.datacolor.com/portfolio-view/spyder5elite/
http://spyder.datacolor.com/portfolio-view/spyder5pro/
Windows 7 32/64, Windows 8.0, 8.1 32/64, Windows 10 32/64
Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10

Maybe its an example of how far you can push things withot being sued.


there is no basis for a lawsuit here either.

if a company wants to make something win10 or later or win8 or later,
that's their choice. it might be very dumb, but it's completely legal.

Once more you demonstrate how narrow you are. If a publicly held company
makes incredibly stupid decisions, a shareholders derivative lawsuit
against management and the directors, might very well succeed.

once again, you demonstrate how much you argue just to argue and how
far you move goalposts.

datacolor is a privately held company. they can do whatever the hell
they want and neither you nor anyone else has to approve.
