I'm running Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), which Microsoft no longer supports. (I realize that I'm continuing to use Windows 7 at my own risk. But I'm physically disabled and use some assistive technology software that doesn't work on Windows 10/11. I'm looking into alternative software, so that I can upgrade my operating system to Windows 10/11 or macOS, but I need some more time.)
Currently, I have TeX Live 2020 installed. I'd like to update my distribution, so I was thinking to uninstall TeX Live 2020 and install TeX Live 2023. But I'd like to have some indication whether 2023 will work -- can be expected to work -- before I uninstall 2020 (which is working; it's just an old distribution). Does anyone here know?
Here's the page for TeX Live on Windows.
- The link to the installer
install-tl-windows.exeis given in the "Easy install" section on that page.
- In the "64- and 32-bit binaries" section on that page, it states, "For users of Windows XP, the 2017 edition is the last one which they still can use." But I don't see any mention of Windows 7 compatibility.
Does anyone here know? Or is there a particular TeX Live user group or mailing list I should query?
