locked Re: Statement from Joseph Lee regarding NVDA add-ons and Windows XP support requests: no more, period

All my add-ons (at least ones I’m maintaining) will support Windows 7 as long as NVDA supports it. Two exceptions: Enhanced Touch Gestures as it does not support anything earlier than Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 App Essentials which is tied to support lifecycle for consumers from Microsoft for each feature update; these two add-ons include routines to reject installation on Windows 7 systems.

I agree. But the time will come, probably later rather than sooner, when a necessary change to NVDA or a given add-on breaks backward compatibility with Windows 7 as a direct effect. And depending on when that happens to occur it could be very difficult to try to justify jumping through any hoops for maintaining backward compatibility. This pattern has occurred over and over again over the decades.
