Primavera Software and Windows 10

Windows 10 LogoIf you are considering an upgrade to Windows 10 there are certain things you must know. First of all, Oracle has no plans to certify any release of Primavera P6 older than R8.2 to work with Windows 10. Oracle plans to issue Service Packs for several releases in September of 2015 to ensure compatibility, but if you have purchased Release 15.1 after August 2015 everything should be fine. And while Oracle will not certify Releases 7.0 through 8.1 as being compatible with Windows 10, they have not found any issues as long as the latest Service Pack is being used.

Windows 10 also includes a new browser called Edge. This does cause a problem for users of Primavera P6 EPPM so it is advised that you continue using Microsoft Explorer, Google Chrome, or Firefox Mozilla for P6 Web. Further details are provided below.

Here is what we currently know about the compatibility of Primavera P6 EPPM, Primavera P6 Professional, and Primavera Contractor. Please note that certification dates are subject to change.
