Whether the file official report of loading is created?
« on: February 18, 2021, 08:12:17 »
Installed Windows 7 x64 and wanted to try OMPT amd64 Portable v1.30.
Received the message that the computer does not conform to system requirements.
x86 works without problems.

Did not find what system requirements have to be. I do not know what does not suit OMPT in my computer.
I understand that I will not list "fittings" of the computer yet, nobody will give the answer to me.
Maybe the file official report of loading somewhere is created?
Or tell where to read about the minimum system requirements of OMPT?

Starting with OpenMPT 1.30, you will need to use the amd64-legacy or x86-legacy portable packages (or the combined installer, which will figure it out by itself).

Requirements for 1.30 will be listed in the releases announcement and release notes when it is officially released.
In general, you can find information about system requirements for older OpenMPT versions or older Operating Systems at https://forum.openmpt.org/index.php?topic=6188.0, and specifically for 1.30 at https://forum.openmpt.org/index.php?topic=6538.0.

OpenMPT-1.30.00.27-r14175-portable-amd64-legacy was started easily!
Thank you! I will test...

Read system requirements... I hope, in the nearest future Windows 10 will not become obligatory for OMPT...

We currently do not have any plans to remove Windows 7 support.

However, at some point in the future, Windows 7 support will have to be removed. The reasons why we have to cut support for old platforms have been discussed in this old thread https://forum.openmpt.org/index.php?topic=5708.0.
