Howdy, I see that the release notes say that this is compatible with XP and Vista. Neither of those have been supported by Microsoft in quite a while. Have you updated the products to support Windows 7 or Windows 10 yet? Interested in your product but, if it doesn't work on the operating systems I have, I can't get there from here. :)
Thank you for your interest in TheSkyX Astronomy Software!

We'll need to check our site for a possible lingering statement to that effect, but the reality is that TheSkyX Astronomy Software for Windows now requires Windows 7, or later. This has been the case since build 10229, released in September of 2016.
UPDATE: I should add that all prior versions of TheSkyX Astronomy Software for Windows are also compatible with Windows 7 through Windows 10.

That's what I figured but, always like to check. Even checked some of the retailer sites (for instance, Astronomics) and they also mention XP and Vista... Sounds good - will add it to my Christmas "wish list".

FWIW, the minimum system requirements for each Edition are published below:

Take a look @ this one: http://www.bisque.com/help/theskyx%20sae%20info/index.htm#t=New_Features.htm - bullet point that mentions Windows OS has XP/Vista... This is the page I was getting to... :)
That page was written for users familiar with TheSky's previous incarnation, TheSky6, who might be considering upgrading to the new incarnation, TheSkyX. The transition took place in 2010, but we still periodically have customers making this upgrade. It's not really a "living" document, however we should update it to reflect that Windows 7, or later, is now required for the Windows edition.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
