# GE CIMPLICITY on Windows 10

#### K5MOB

I know its not listed as a compatible OS but has any one attempted to run CIMPLICITY 8.2 on Win10?

Interesting question. I have always tried running later version on Windows XP or Windows 7. but never tried running 8.2 on Win10. If it installs, you should be good. I would imagine it is possible. However, I think you can upgrade to Cimplicity 9.0 or 9.5 at a very cheap price. I would recommend going that course of action if this is going to be used in an industrial place.

It is currently installed in a power plant, GE wants 150k to upgrade. I told them to go pound sand I will pay ABB to build out the rest of controls in our BOP before I pay GE 150k for 3 machines!

I am sorry for the bad news. As I said before, \$25K per HMI was an estimate. This depends on what other software is on there. From your comments above, it sounds like you don't have any ControlST on the HMI. That takes off a good amount. A majority of the costs is in the software licenses.

If you provide more details here, I can you evaluate things you need to look at for the upgrade.
