Maybe – but if it doesn’t (& even the latest FM2015 isn’t saying it will work 100%), it probably won’t be fixed in a version that old. Usually patches are current version – 1 level, so FM12.

re: ... but if it doesn’t ...

You could probably get FM to run in an older Windows 7,8 or 8.1 under Hyper-V under Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise. You would also need a full-install license key for the older Windows, and of course media (or install files) for FM10 and whatever authentication key Adobe implemented for that.

Hyper-V is the replacement for Virtual PC (typically used for XP Mode) on Windows 7. The setup and installation is substantially different than for XP Mode, and may or may not require hardware virtualisation capability in the CPU, which all recent AMD64 processors have, but many low-end Intel processors do not. I run FM7 under XP Mode on Win7p, and have no further insights on later FMs under Hyper-V.

I'll test this when I get home. I've just upgraded my laptop to win 10. Very happy with it I might add.

Just checked, opened a book. Everything looks fine, graphics display, save works, save to pdf works. Just like earlier versions of windows.

I just tried to install windows 10 and the installer said I had to remove Framemaker 12 to continue installation.  Any thoughts?

In the past, all versions of FM have co-existed peacefully on Windows machines. I have FM6 to FM2015 on Win7 machine.

If you have the installation files (and patches) for FM12, you coiuld try uninstalling that, then install FM10 and then reinstall FM12. However, why are you taking such a giant step backwards? FM12 addresses many issues found in FM10, and you can always save out as MIF from FM12 such that it can be opened in FM10.

Sorry - I wasn't clear. I have Framemaker 12 running happily on Windows 8.1. In upgrading to Windows 10, the installer said it would remove my Framemaker 12 installation since it wasn't compatible with Windows 10, so I stopped the installation. This thread had gone beyond the original FM 10 discussion so I just jumped in.

It's usualy best to stick with the topic of the thread and to start a new thread when the issue is actually different.

I have Framemaker 10 working on windows 10 however I cannot generate pdf's. I have tried reinstalling the product, but this does not help as the packaged distiller does not seem to work in windows 10. I am hesitant to buy full version acrobat for windows 10 as the reader is quite unstable and stops working several times a day.

If you didn’t have a full version of Acrobat already, then installing FM10 would have installed the “headless” version of Distiller – I’m not sure if that version is compatible with Win10.

BTW if you DO have a full version, you shouldn’t have the Reader version installed also – Acrobat doesn’t like multiple copies hanging around.
