Windows 7 compatibility

Post by guerra_cues »

On the documentation, I read that it asks for a Windows 10 PC to be used with the CNC Controller.
Does that mean that Windows 7 won't work or it's not compatible?
Microsoft Windows 8.1, 7 and older versions are not supported it says on the documentation... What does that suppose to mean? What might not work?
