Microsoft ended its official support for Windows 7 on January 14th this year. Hence, I think it is reasonable to assume that Magix has followed this and there will be no "official" Magix support for the new version of MM under that OS.

As to whether the app will actually "work" under that OS, I guess someone will need to install the Trial version to find out, remembering that MM 2021, aka version 29, is now 64 bit.

Can I install the trial version of 2021 without uninstalling (or breaking) 2020?

Hi

Yes you can - in the installation dialog do not select the replace option.

Do note though there are some issues with the 2021 version. - see this topic.

Thanks. I'm aware of the issues and am prepared to wait a while for them to be sorted out.
