I'm currently using Camtasia Studio 8.5.2 on a Windows 7 machine. I am supposed to be getting a new Windows 10 machine next week. Will this version or Camtasia still work? Thanks!

While Windows has many flaws, the one thing that it is really good at, is backwards compatibility, so you'll have no problems with that.

Indeed. Just yesterday I personally experienced this. I had someone asking me to do something with overlaying a countdown timer on a video. Something like XX minutes xx seconds and counting down. I had a small application I had downloaded several years back that did this. It was designed for Windows XP and when I installed it and ran it on my Windows 10 PC, it squawked and issued an error.

Naturally, I figured I was doomed and it would fail spectacularly. But after I clicked OK to dismiss the error, it worked flawlessly.

Cheers... Rick :)

Paradoxically, Rick, backwards compatibility is just about the only flaw I've ever found with MacOS.

I have some old programs, from early versions of MacOS X, that simply won't work - not even in any shell I've tried - yet I've got some really old Classic MacOS programs that will at least work in a shell. As they say in America, go figure! It's like there's a black hole in the middle of MacOS evolution. The missing link, as it were. :-)

Hence, my best solution is if there is a Windows or DOS version of any old program that I particularly want, then I can run that version, either on a Windows laptop I have, or, to take the paradox even further, in a Windows shell on my MacBook Pro! As we say in Britain, you couldn't make it up. :-)
