-===== Running Rhino V4 under (64-bit) Windows 7, 8.1, or 10 =====+===== Rhino 4 on Windows 10 ===== 
 +Rhino 4 was written for Windows XP, and is not supported in Windows Vista or newer. 
 +If you try to run Rhino 4 in newer versions of Windows, you'll encounter these problems:
-Rhino V4 was designed to run under Windows XP, but it can run as originally designed in modern versions of Windows. Here are the limitations and requirements to run Rhino V4 under newer versions of Windows. 
 ==== Limitations and Requirements ==== ==== Limitations and Requirements ====
-  * **Memory** Your new 64-bit computer system probably came with 16GB of RAM or more. Rhino V4 is a 32-bit application. This means it is limited to using a maximum of only 4GB of RAM no matter how much RAM your new system has.  +  * **Memory:** Your 64-bit computer has 16GB of RAM or more. Rhino is a 32-bit application and only has access to 4GB of RAM. Rhino 4 cannot support large models like newer versions of Rhino
-  * **Legacy Application** Rhino V4 was released before Microsoft added **User Account Control** to Windows. To work around this feature, you will need to run Rhino V4 in **Windows XP SP3 Compatibility Mode** or Windows will block Rhino from saving changes to your toolbars and other settings when Rhino is closed as it was designed to do. Windows Compatibility mode settings are part of the Desktop shortcut properties. +  * **User Account Control:** Rhino was released before Microsoft added **User Account Control** to Windows. Rhino 4 must run in **Windows XP SP3 Compatibility Mode.** Doing so allows Rhino to save changes to your toolbars and settings it closes. Windows Compatibility mode settings are part of the Desktop shortcut properties. 
-  * **Low resolution** Your new computer probably is capable of running at much higher screen resolutions than your old Windows XP system. You will need to limit Windows and run it at a lower screen resolution (like 1024 x 768), that was supported back when Rhino V4 was released. If you don't some tools like the **Layer panel** will be blank and Rhino V4's toolbar icons may be too small to read.+  * **Low resolution:** Your computer probably supports high resolution and high-DPI screens.

-In addition to the [[|new features and capabilities]] in Rhino V6to take full advantage of the features of your new 64-bit Windows system, including RAM, display resolution, etc., you should consider upgrading to Rhino V6. Back in January 2007 when Rhino V4 was released, it supported the features of 32-bit Windows XP. Windows and computer hardware have come a long way since then. To take advantage of these new features and capabilities, you will need a version of Rhino designed for it.\\+Rhino 7 has [[|new features and capabilities]], and will take advantage of the features of your 64-bit Windows computer.
