With the imminent arrival of Windows 10 [and that it's been available for test for some time], is someone able to confirm that VCDS will be able to successfully work with this Windows version?

Thanks & Regards - Julian

We'll only confirm that VCDS Release 15.7 (which is also imminent) will work on Windows 10. :D

Quite a few have been running Beta 15.6 on Windows 10 including the latest versions without any issues. In short, you shouldn't see (m)any issues.

FWIW; I accidentally updated my main/production machine a few hours ago and have been using Windows 10 Pro since. Gotta tell you, I am not disappointed to have switched from 8.1 to 10. On 8.1 I was using StartIsBack+ to fix the crippled Start Menu - guess what? Looks like I can work without that on 10. While I agree with whomever is gonna shout "never upgrade a production system right away", it happened by accident and even so - it works at least as good as before. So Kudos Microsoft. Job well done!

As far as VCDS goes. HEX-NET related functions as well as VCDS itself runs fine w/o any issues I could find. Pretty much confirms the results I have been seeing in the Technology Previews.

How the heck does one update the OS on a machine "by accident"? :rolleyes:

It asks you if you'd like to download. I didn't mind the download. ;) Just didn't realize that download meant installation too and due to some other windows update mess (due to a 3rd party driver from a certain German vendor we know) I was dealing with at the time - the abort / status wasn't accessible for some time. Let's just leave it at that, all went good. If it hadn't I would have known who to blame... :p

Release 14.10.2 was published in March.
Beta 15.6.1 was published in June.
Release 15.7.0 will probably be available tomorrow or Friday at the latest. :cool:

Sweet! Thinking about upgrading to Windows 10 but wanted to make sure all would be good with VCDS. Awesome!

Nothing really to do with VCDS, but I strongly urge anyone who's installing Windows 10 to pay close attention to review these settings and read this article.
