hp prime virtual emulator on windows 8.1
Is anyone running the 20210428 64 bit hp prime virtual emulator on windows 8.1?

I have tried installing it on top of the 2020 emulator and have tried a clean install.

The emulator starts and then the dreaded close the program message box comes up.

Any comments are welcome.

Thanks.

It looks like HP migrated to QT 6 or newer I their latest virtual emulator builds.
https://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-16...#pid147122

QT 6 no longer supports Windows 7 or Windows 8.
"Both Windows 7 or 8. x version support will not be available for Qt 6. Microsoft discontinued the support for both Windows versions some time ago, and as a vendor, we can no longer maintain support for these windows versions in Qt 6."

Ok. Thanks Steve.

I guess it is time to fire up the win10 tower I have waiting in the wings.

I am running win 8.1 on this laptop which is much more convenient.

Thanks also for the pointer to the thread.

Why not upgrade the 8.1 laptop to Win10? It's free, it's legal, Win10 works on almost literally every machine 8.1 runs on and it's easy to do? Also, the Win10 UX is a lot better (IMHO) than Win 8, but that's clearly just an opinion.

Thanks for your suggestion--I have been mulling over that option too.
The laptop has a separate data partition so that is feasible.

Thanks.
