Windows 10 and Home Designer 2014

Recommended Posts

Will Home Designer 2014 work if I upgrade my computer to Windows 10?

 

I see that Windows 10 isn't on the officially supported list for HD 2014 but I assume that is just because they didn't bother to officially test it. Has anyone tried it?

I have Home designer versions 10-2016 on my Windows 10 PC, they all work fine.

A few weeks ago I updated my windows from 7 to 10, and HDA 2014 works PERFECTLY. I even run programmes I bought before the turn of the century and they work smoothly. I'm not kidding.

I'm planning to update to HDPro 2016 but so far with HDA 2014 I haven't faced any trouble.

I am installing HDP 2015 in a Windows 10 PC. I made copies of the Bonus Libraries, Core Libraries, Manufacturer Data, Manufacturer Libraries, Program_Data, and Referenced Files folders according to the CA instructions online. I installed HDP 2015 on the new PC and looked for the appropriate directory to put these folder in but did not find one. Can anyone tell me where these folders should be put in the Windows 10 world. I created the same C://Program Data/Home Designer Pro (64bit)/ folder, that they came from on the Windows 7 PC, and put them there to see if it would work. When I launched HDP on the new PC, the libraries came up empty and HDP offered to downloaded the 'Core Libraries' from the web. Should I import each of the .cabil files in the Bonus and Manufacturer Libraries folders?

 

I had no trouble with the 'User Catalog' migration.

I'd let the program get new content, but you should be able to import the libraries.
