Windows 11 will be released as early as next month. Has anyone done some testing of the existing versions of Mathcad (i.e. MC15, Prime 3-7) to identify issues under Win 11. Personally, I have a perpetual academic license for MC Prime 3.1, and as a retiree, I am loathe buy a subscription version.
Furthermore, I have had to reinstall MC Prime 3.1 several times and it has never been an easy task. Unless I am reasonably certain that an upgrade to Win 11 will not be an issue for Mathcad Prime 3.1, I will simply stay with Win10.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Prime 7 and Mathcad 15 works fine with Windows 11 for me. What´s not working is Excel component in Prime 7 but works fully in Mathcad 15. I was using Office 365 latest version when testing!
That’s good to know. I am assuming that you are running one of the pre-release versions of win 11.
For me, there is still a concern as to whether Prime 3.1 will work, or whether there will be issues with license management.
thanks for the quick reply
yes - I´m a Windows Insider and I tested an early version of win 11 during my 30 day trial of Prime 7 ! Don´t know anything about Prime 3.1 !
Thanks again. I was hoping that someone from PTC would reply as well, given that Mathcad is a Windows product.
Regarding your testing, did you need to do a complete reinstall of Mathcad after migration from Win 10 to Win 11, or did mathcad move as part of the migration to win 11.
just to upgrade windows from 10 to 11 does not inpact any of your installed applications - if you do a clean install of win 11 means that you have to reinstall all your apps !!
By the way, for Creo there is such a document available - "Creo Future Platform Support Summary": https://www.ptc.com/support/-/media/7D1BD5F82F7B483C90454DE134F29D8E.ashx?sc_lang=en
My problem may be the other way - will future Prime run on windows 10!
Can't upgrade to 11 - no TPM chip.
We all have our problems.
according to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/windows-10-home-and-pro page, Retirement Date of Windows 10 is Oct 14, 2025. I expect that Mathcad will run on Windows 10 until this date.
that is good to know, but as I explained at the beginning of this thread, as a retired guy, buying the new version of Mathcad is not on my radar. Furthermore, my desktop doesn’t meet Win 11 system requirements either, so I’ll be on Win10 a while longer.
