QuestionWindows Universal Platform on Windows 7? Pin
Matt T Heffron16-Jul-15 8:15

We're looking at developing a new instrument control and analysis UI as Windows Universal Apps running on Windows 10 (desktop).
We're expecting marketing to push back and say that the software (analysis, at least) must be able to be run on Windows 7.
Is there any way to be able to do this?
A back-compatibility API/SDK?

Even recompiling for Windows 7 would be acceptable. (It doesn't need to be the exact same executable FILE, just the application functionality.)

Doing parallel development of two otherwise identical applications for Windows 7 and Windows 10 is not sensible.

Would our only option be to forego the Windows Universal Platform completely, and develop as regular WPF/MVVM for Windows 7 and then just run it in Windows 10?
