I am considering purchasing/upgrading one or two products. I am not specifying which products because I am not sure which ones. I am looking primarily at upgrading Sony Sound Forge Pro 11 and a video editor. Some of the new programs specify Windows 10. I am purchasing a Dell XPS 8940 with Windows 10 Home, 64-bit English. Will ALL of your programs, both those that require Windows 10 and those that don't require Windows ten work on that operating system?

Will my current Sony Sound Forge Pro 11 work on my new computer during the transition to the Magix Software?

Thank you for your assistance?

Earlier 32 bit versions of Sound Forge, Vegas, Acid, ect. run well on 64 bit Win 10. I have personally ran versions of SF going back to SF-8 w/o issue. Magix versions of SF (12 through 14) run on Win 7-10. SF 12-14 also include a 32 bit version,.S
SCS (Sony) versions have an 'unspecified' number of simultaneous activations, Magix versions are limited to two PCs.

FWIW, some folks with SF-10, experience an 'Elevated Privilege' issue after 'some' Win 10 updates. But this can be fixed by a registry tweak or running SF-10 as an administrator. I use SF Pro-10 for some projects, as I prefer the non-modal plug-in chainer and record UI.

Welcome to the Magix user to user forums so not a contact for any Magix staff, and the software is therefore not "ours"!

As requested by you in your other post, it has been hidden rather than deleted.

I am not aware of ANY current Magix software that doesn't work with Windows 10. Which products have you seen which don't require Windows 10?
