Running Mathcad with Windows 11

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.

 

thoughts?
Mike

All I can really officially say is that PTC hasn't certified any Mathcad product for Windows 11, so any possible issues is just a risk.

I manage the Creo and PTC Mathcad YouTube channels for PTC, as well as all PTC Mathcad marketing in general.

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!

Owe,

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

Hello Mike

Owe,

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.

Hi,

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.
