Hi! Just wanted to give you a heads up that we are finally dropping support for Windows 7 for Houdini 18 and future releases. We've wanted to do this for years and now is the time. We did a poll years ago and another one at the tech summit at Siggraph this year as well and we expect the impact to our customers at this time to range from minimal to non-existent. In addition, Microsoft ended mainstream support for Win 7 four years ago and is officially ending their extended support for it in January 2020.
We hope you understand this decision and we wish you well in your upgrades. Take care!
