    Has anyone had any problems yet running Dyn SL 2018 CU2 on a Windows 7 or 8 machine.

    I have a client that will be upgrading there workstations this year to Windows 10 but want to do the Dynamics SL upgrade to 2018 before that time due timing of auditors coming and questions that they are not on a "supported" version of Dynamics, (early SL 2011).

    Which is worse in the auditors' minds:  running a supported version of SL on an OS that is not a supported environment for SL 2018 or running an unsupported version of SL on an OS that is a supported for that version of SL?

    Also, be sure to tell them that they need to apply a critical patch to their Win 7 machines that addresses a vulnerability similar to the one that allowed the Wannacry exploit.

    We are upgrading to SL2018 from 2011. All our workstations are windows because 2011 will not run on windows 10. Since 2018 will not run on Windows 7 we had to use remote desktop for our SL users, then we will start upgrading to windows 10 after we go live with SL2018.
