    Does CompanionLink 7 work with Windows 7?

    I couldn't find any obvious place on the support site that said if CompanionLink 7 works with Windows 7, or if I should upgrade, or if CompanionLink 6 was still an active product after the release of CompanionLink 7.

    Is that info out there, anyone?

    Works perfectly with Win7.
    Nobody releases a product that does not work on Win7 these days since Win7 still is the most wide spread Win OS.

    Office: Win10 x64, Outlook 365 (v2016, up to date) German, CL Express 7050 --- Local WiFi sync --- manual syncing, daily
    Home: Win10 x64, Outlook 365 (v2016, up to date) German, CL Express 7050 --- Local WiFi sync --- manual syncing, occasionally
    Syncing to native Android contacts (DJO account), not syncing to native Android calendar

    Actually, in the latest build (7008) they claim to have added support for XP.
    Sadly, I can no longer use CL or DJO as I have replaced Outlook with Thunderbird and Pimlical Desktop. Pimlical, since moving to Java 8 is no longer compatible with Companion Link. I will lurk about just because I am interested. Please let me know if the Pimlical compatibility problem ever changes and thanks to all here for your support and help over the years. This is the best software for synching Outlook to Android.

    Yes, we restored XP.

    We lost XP in the UI changes. The pretty colored "material design" style menus could not be rendered in XP. So we ended up making them uglier, but it works ok.

    So CompanionLink 7 now works with Windows XP, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. We have a separate version for Mac OS X.
