Retail Pro® and Windows 10 FAQ

No one knows better than retailers that in the world of connected technologies, an update to one piece of the puzzle – like a new Windows operating system – can upset the balance for the solution as a whole if improperly installed. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Here is a short FAQ highlighting some of the common Windows 10 questions retailers like you have been asking. 

Retail Pro and Windows 10 FAQ

Q: Can I use Retail Pro on Windows 10?
A: Yes! Retail Pro 9.4 fully supports the use of the new Windows 10 OS. Updating your system is easy – we provide installation files for both new and existing users. 

Q: Should I update the Retail Pro 9 software to use Windows 10?
A: Yes! Windows 10 works with the new Retail Pro 9.4, since Windows 10 support will require a migration to a new database structure (Oracle 11g to Oracle 12c). We can help you with that too.

Q: Can I use Windows 10 32-bit or will I have to use the 64-bit version of Windows 10?
A: You can use Windows 10 32-bit systems for Retail Pro 9 client systems where a database is not installed locally. If your Retail Pro 9 database is installed locally, you must run Windows 10 64-bit.

Q: Does Retail Pro Prism support Windows 10?
A: Yes! Retail Pro Prism 1.5 supports Windows 10 in both database environments - Oracle and MySQL. 


Q: Will Retail Pro 8 support Windows 10? 
A: Sadly, the Windows 10 operating environment has critical technical limitations that will not allow it to run Retail Pro 8. If you’re moving to Windows 10, request a free demo from your Business Partner today to review the fit of Windows 10, Retail Pro 9.4, or Retail Pro Prism 1.5 for your business.
