737NGXu compatible/working with Windows 7?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been done before, I surprisingly did not find many references.

As the title says, is the latest NGXu working with Windows 7? I have read PMDG requirements, it is not clear. I don't want to purchase it to find out it is not working.

Anybody out there who has the 737 NGXu with Windows 7? Any issues? Is it working ok?

2nd question: will it work ok with an i7-4790k and a GTX 1660Ti?

Thank you.

Fred Naveau.

Yes but you really need to make the move to Win 10 soon. Especially if you make the move to v5.

Thanks for the replies. Anybody else please using Windows 7? 

Regarding Windows 10, I am a bit unsure about transitioning to it, we all know the old "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". My PC originally came with Windows 7, it still works well for flight simulation and I don't want to mess things up just to get one add on!

Win 7 is unsupported now and won't be updated. The question is not will the NGXu work with Win 7 it is will P3D 4.x work with Win 7. We already know P3D v5 is better on Win 10 build 2004 because it frees up more VRAM. So you have to ask how much your system is being limited by Win 7. Any performance upgrades made by add on developers to take advantage of improvements to Win 10 will not be gained in Win 7. Plus anything developed(planes scenery ect) moving forward will not be developed or tested on a Win 7 system. So any issues arising from using Win 7 will not be supported.
