Breeze are no longer able to provide support for Windows 8, and will end support for our software running on Windows 8.1 on January 10th 2023.
When Microsoft end support for a version of their operating system, we can no longer test or support our products on this operating system safely.
If you are still running Breeze programs on Windows 8 or 8.1 we strongly recommend you upgrade to Windows 11 as soon as possible.
I’m still running Breeze on Windows 8.1, will the program stop working on January 10th?
If you are already running a Breeze program on Windows 8.1 or Windows 8, we don’t expect it to stop working. However we recommend you upgrade your operating system to Windows 11 as soon as possible. Take a copy of both registration name and code, and deactivate the license before you start in case of problems.
Which versions of Windows will you support after January 11th?
From January 11th we will support Intel processors running Windows 11 and 10 (not Windows 11 S or 10 S).
Can I still upgrade my old Breeze license?
Any customer with a valid license for a current Breeze product can buy an upgrade license. All our Windows products include at least one year of free upgrades from the date the license was issued.
