Windows 10 Compatibility


All NEW Matrix and Cosmic Patterns software are Windows 10 compatible.


For those of you with installation CDs or saved download links created prior to July 2015 please contact us first before installing. These installations are not Windows 10 compatible. You will need to update or upgrade your programs.

The old Win*Star 2.0, Win*Star 2.5, or Win*Star Plus are more than 17 years old and they are not compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

Win*Star 4.0 Standard, Extended, or Professional are Windows 7, and Windows 8 compatible. If you have Windows 10 computer however, you can try installing it but it is not guaranteed that it will work on Windows 10. If after installing it on Windows 10 the program failed to run (or it failed to install), then your next option is to purchase the upgrade to the current version.

Win*Star 6.0 Standard, Extended, or Professional are 100% compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10.
