Re: Quik or Studio on win 7

Microsoft mainstream support for Windows 7 ended January 13, 2015. You should update your OS. I seriously doubt GoPro will put resources into making their software backwards compatible.

Re: Quik or Studio on win 7

GoPro needs to wake up and understand that more than half of all windows PC still use Windows 7, they must be aware of this by seeing what OS people are using to access ther web site. I was about to buy a new gopro but not now.

Re: Quik or Studio on win 7

While it is true that around 48% of all windows users are on Windows 7, it's not usually the best practice to try to continuously build software that's backwards compatible. GoPro cameras are not relying upon the desktop software so if you are only purchasing a camera based upon the software it utilizes then you're correct, this may not be the best camera for you.

Considering that most other camera manufacturers have desktop software that is either non-existent or also lacking in features, I don't know if searching for a camera based on desktop software is the smartest move. Most companies currently are focusing on mobile software for utilization of their cameras.

There are many such complaints, but yet another. No version for linux, no for win 7 - what to do? I don't want to download from external servers. The manual page is outdated, because it describes the installation for win 7.
