Is windows 7 supported by default?


#1

One of the users of one of my plugins is unable to use it on his windows 7 machine (reaper doesn’t even see it). Can I ask if Windows 7 is supported using a Visual Studio 2015 (running in windows 10) build with default settings on the projucer? Or am I expected to change some of the settings on the projucer to support win7 (e.g. such as the ‘platform toolset’)?

Thanks!

I’ve have developed with Juce on Windows 7 with both VS2015 and VS2017 and all the stuff runs on my computer.

Maybe you didn’t statically link the Microsoft runtime library into your plugin? If you don’t link that statically, it would need to be separately installed on the end user’s machine.
