Important note relating to Autodesk.

“To be eligible for support, the Autodesk software must be running on vendor-supported operating systems. If a vendor chooses to end support for an operating system, our support for Autodesk products running on that operating system will also end, whether or not the products are among the eligible previous versions.” This means that any Autodesk product release 2018, 2019 & 2020 will not now be supported under Windows 7.
