Microsoft recently announced that on July 29th, Windows users will have the option to register and upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10 operating system on any device that is already licensed with Windows. As with the release of any new operating system or software version, ITG is performing on-going compatibility testing of this OS with common and school-specific applications and services.
Although Windows 10 is available to Faculty and Staff through CUIT, at this time, we do not recommend upgrading. Only basic compatibility testing has been performed. These tests are meant to determine the support from vendors of Windows 10 and to confirm the basic functions of supported applications. More rigorous compatibility testing, as well as reliable feedback through public usage is needed before we can recommend upgrading at this time. For students who have already installed Windows 10 or will purchase a new laptop with Windows 10, ITG will provide best effort support with any issues you may experience.
Core applications such as MS Office, Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat have been certified by their respective vendors to work with Windows 10.
- MS Office 2007 - 2013
- Adobe Acrobat XI Standard and Pro
- Adobe DC (Latest version of Adobe Reader)
