I have so far been resisting upgrading my Laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10 because my initial investigation suggested Mathcad might not run correctly under Window 10 without a very expensive upgrade. Is this still the case?
I am a retired Engineer and Manager living on a adequate but limited pension and could not afford the suggested cost of the upgrade thought to be required when Windows 10 was launched. As the free upgrade to Windows 10 is coming to an end on 29 July 2016 I need to decide whether or not to accept Microsoft’s offer before that date. Obviously I will need to upgrade to Windows 10 eventually because Microsoft will at some point stop supporting Windows 7. If I postpone upgrading Widows now this will incur additional expense later.
I originally obtained a free copy of Mathcad as an Open University student. I subsequently upgraded to Mathcad Prime when my OU studies came to an end. I am however still registered as an OU student.
I wrote a book on Economics which included a lot of advanced Maths and some new Maths I developed in Mathcad using a hybrid numerical and analytical approach that enabled me to produce general solutions to some otherwise insoluble equations. I am still revising this work and therefore I still need access to Mathcad.
Can anyone in the Network with clear knowledge of this issue help me to decide whether or not to upgrade Windows 10 before 29 July 2016 and if I do will I still be able to run Mathcad Prime 3.1 without incurring significant expense?
