    OMEGA 2.5 can operate with Windows® Vista®, Windows XP and Windows 2000 operating systems. OMEGA 2.5 also provides several new features described in this document, and addresses multiple user-reported issues.

    Most WIndows XP software are also compatibale with Windows 10, 8.7, Try to install the program if it works then it is compatible.

    Thanks for the Info Tim.

    However, I would like to hear from those who are ACTUALLY using Omega 2.5 and the OS they are using.

    Barry, to be fair you are asking for a narrow category of people on an older sfotware, that may be browsing the forum. I have ( not CURRENTLY) used omega 2.5 on Windows 7. I printed, and cut. I placed the software in Windows XP mode and did not have issues.

    Hi Jburns

    Thanks for your reply.

    Your comment that you had used Omega 2.5 on a Win 7 machine was very interesting to me. I thought the highest Operating System Omega 2.5 could run on was XP.

    Jburns said that he is not CURRENTLY running Win 7 and 2.5. SOOoooo, how about the rest of you...are you currently running 2.5 on a Win 7 machine??? If so, did you run into any problems installing or needed to "tweak" the system to get it to run??????????

    Thanks
    Barry

    We recently upgraded to 5 but were running 2.6 on 3 seperate windows 7 machines for 5+ years with no problems. As mentioned above, we may have put them in windows XP mode when installing but I can't recall for sure. This may be more critical on the print/cut version than just a design station.
