Last Versions of software to properly work on 8.1

I’ve decided to create this thread, since the amount of half working programs have became kinda crazy.

Handbrake - 1.3 is the latest officially supported version. At this time the newest version work just fine, but it is no longer supported.

Beamng.Drive and Rocket League - Both give "App stopped working" When you properly exit them. They function just fine, but this weird message comes up every time.

Geforce experience - While you can install and open the newest 1.24 geforce experience, it no longer screen captures and many other functions stops working. 1.23 is the latest one that still work normally.

VMware workstation Pro - The newest 16.2.1 version of this still functions on 8.1, but 3D acceleration has been turned off for some reason. 16.1.2 is the latest one that still functions as intended.

Logitech GHUB - The latest version works if you update it through vista compatibility setting. For some users a warning saying that the driver is not digitally signed pops up, but everything still works.

iTunes - See my topic on this. 

Onedrive - Microsoft claims that it will stop working on 1st of january 2022

Office 2019 - Somewhere on msfn I’ve seen people claiming that it can be installed. I use office 365 and it still updates to their newest version just fine.

Ryzen CPUs - They work just fine. Don’t forget to manually install missing pci drivers from amd folder and usb 3.1 root hub. Use AMD’s windows 10 driver version 2.17.25.506

RTX 3000 - Unfortunately no known workaround has been found :(

RX 6000 by amd - They seem to work. Sometimes you get weird colors on unity games.

 

Please contribute to this list. 

 

Cheers

OneDrive for business should work after that date? You can still download and use it on 8.1 with registry tweak.

 

"If you are using the OneDrive desktop application for business, starting January 1, 2022, support for this application will be aligned with the Windows support lifecycle."

paint.NET 4.3.3 is the last version to work on Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1. Starting with version 4.4 paint.NET will only work on a more recent version of Windows 10 and Windows 11. paint.NET is also discontinuing 32-bit versions of its app even under 32-bit versions of Windows 10: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/118933-paintnet-433-is-now-available/

If paint.NET doesn't work on Windows 8, can you use Dependency Walker to determine which entry points are missing in Windows 8?

Windows 10 will be supported until October 14, 2025 and Windows 11 will be supported until October 14, 2031.
