+ Older versions of WIndows are only a threat if they are running on computers connected to the internet.Anyone using SpotCollector or Pathfinder would be using the internet.
Anyone using an on-line log book in DXKeeper would be using the
internet. Anyone uploading/syncing with LotW, ClubLog, eQSL is using
the internet. As such, DXLab Suite is significantly crippled without
internet access and it should be assumed any user is (or should be)
running Windows 8 or 10.
+ My understanding is that the new 32-bit version of 2-Tone ishardware <> Operating System. One can run Windows 8 or 10 on older
processors (processors without AVX) but that hardware and Win8/10
will still run the 32 bit version of 2Tone 21.02a.
It would seem to me that the vast majority of DXLab Suite users
would be running Windows 8 or 10. I do not see a justification
to make them "jump through hoops" to take advantage of 2Tone 21.02a.
Instead the minority running on XP (gag) or 7 can easily download
2Tone 15.05a (or 16.x) from AA5AU's web site and replace 21.02a in
the WinWarbler directory (they're obviously willing to roll their
own if they are still using unsupported operating systems).
