HTML Validator 2023 (v23.00) and Windows 7

Post by paulp575 »

Yes, I know I should upgrade to Win 10, but not quite ready due to some software (non-OS) compatibility issues.

Question - and this may be a bit early to ask - what kind of compatibility issues is anyone encountering when using version 23 with Windows 7.

Thanks.

Hello,

I have not tested CSS HTML Validator 2023 on my old Windows 7 notebook that's still around but I suspect it should work except for perhaps JavaScript checking... and you could likely get that to work (if you want/need it) by downgrading/replacing the version of node.exe that comes with the program.

I will update my response if I manage to get around to trying to run it on Windows 7. :D

In my opinion, Windows 7 was a great OS... but it's time to move on to Windows 10. I do not like Windows 11, mostly because there is no more vertical taskbar support and I use that on almost all of my computers. It makes a lot more sense to take up a little vertical room than more valuable and useful (at least to me) horizontal room across the bottom of the screen... but Windows 10 is definitely a good Windows 7 replacement.

Windows 11 takes too many features away that Windows 10 had. I'm hoping they will eventually "fix" Windows 11 or release Windows 12 that brings back the good/important stuff that they took away.

Appreciate the response and your willingness to test on Win 7. I will install it and post what - if any - problems I have.
I don't think I do JavaScript checking so it may not b a problem.

I do plan on upgrading to Win 10 in the near future (there's a couple programs that I use extensively and they aren't upgraded for use with Win 10 yet, but the developers are working on that). They are freeware programs so it takes time for those developers to upgrade.
