for the most part, 9, 10, and 11 all run fine on Win10.. no show-stopper 
issues that I've seen.. one interesting thing I've seen about installation 
is that different versions of the WP suite put the default BDE and the 
default priv in different places.. again, not a show stopper

I have both 9 and 10 but I have to use 9 because 10 does not print
forms, 11 fixed that.

What are the main pitfalls of running 9 in Win 10? Would WPO X7 Pro run
with less problems than 9?
