    unable to download SW.

    I checked the requirements and chose the 2017 2018 version, downloaded but get an error saying not compatible with windows 8. requirement table says it should be fine unless i am mistaken. What should I be doing?
    Thanks, John

    I think the problem may be in the serial number you are using to install SWX. EAA sends out a serial number that gives you access to SWX Ed Pro 2019, whereas, those older programs require a different serial number. Please email me and I will help you out if I am able to locate an older serial.

    I would HIGHLY recommend upgrading to Windows 10. Win7 is about to lose support and 8 was a mistake that Microsoft let out of its campus.
