    I have a Roland SP540V running VersaWorks 5.3.2 on a Windows 7 computer which is not being supported by Microsoft any longer and I want to upgrade to a Windows 10 computer, does anyone know if the VersaWorks 5.3.2 will work on Windows 10?

    How hard is this going to be to switch over to the new computer, the only CD I have with the original VersaWorks software is very old, and I remember you had to set up an IP address and that was a ***** for me.

    Thanks for any guidance on this.

    Versaworks 6.x is a free download from the RolandDGA website. Yes, you will have to setup the IP address of the printer, but that would be needed with any installation on a new PC.

    Does Versaworks 6 work with the older SP540V Printer-Cutter?

    I am running 5.5.1 VersaWorks with a VersaCamm VS-300 on W10. No problems.

    I have a dedicated box running Win 7 and Versaworks (an old version) and do NOT have them connected to the internet = no updates. It all works just fine and I don't need to break it. I use a thumb drive to transfer files from my "Corel" box to the print box. If the box fails, I'll address that at the time (getting close to retirement and that may be a good reason to hang it all up)

    Literally JUST went through this conversion (Windows 7 Pro) to Windows 10 Home. The conversion over was flawless and easy. We just went to roland's website and input our info/serial and downloaded the newest version from there.

    ****DO NOT FORGET TO EXPORT ALL YOUR PROFILES FROM VERSAWORKS!!!!!!*******

    Roland stopped supporting your printer. Does this mean you're upgrading your printer?
