Solar Fire Software Requirements


Solar Fire v9 will run on all current Microsoft-supported versions of Windows including Windows 8 and 10 (except as noted below). Older versions of Windows are NOT recommended.

Windows 8 RT and Windows 10S do NOT run Solar Fire V9. (see notes below)... But other Windows 10 and Windows 8 versions work perfectly well!


Notes:Windows 8 RT is a discontinued mobile operating system developed by Microsoft. It is an edition of Windows 8.x built for the 32-bit ARM architecture.

Windows 10S can only run apps downloaded from the Windows store and not third party applications like Solar Fire®. Most computers are equipped with Windows 10 Home or Pro version so this shouldn't be an issue for most people. On the off chance that your computer uses Windows 10S, you will need to upgrade to Windows 10 Home or Pro versions (around $50) in order to run Solar Fire.

To  install and run Solar Fire,un-sync MS OneDrive from being the  file default place.

Note it is possible to upgrade a Mac to run Windows… Email us for more information
