I forgot to ask... sorry.

Will NS or NSBU run on Windows 10 Preview?

What about current revision of NIS running on Windows 10 Preview?

Grazie,

Hello Flavio_C

Norton does not support Betas or previews of programs, especially a whole operating system. There are too many changes that happens with them. Even Microsoft recommends not using any security program for the preview other than their security program. I realize they say that with any of their o/s. Sorry.

Re: Will NS or NSBU run on Windows 10 Preview?

Hi floplot,

I just would like to know if anyone has been able to run the latest revision of NIS and NS/NSBU on the Win 10 preview.

I realise that it is not "Symantec Sanctioned" just yet... Like to give it a go if it works nicely.

Any comments/resources appreciated.

Hi bjm_

I did look and see promise with NS. Did not really see anything about NSBU or NIS.

My thought is that NIS will not be updated (hope I'm wrong) as Symantec wants you to go with either NS or NSBU.

Has anyone tried the latest rev of NIS with the latest build of Win 10 Tech Preview?

Is there a Norton Windows 10 beta thread just yet?

Hello Flavio_C

What ever you see for NS will hold true for NSBU as they are basically the same program. Program wise, the only difference between the two is the backup program. The one with the Backup is good for 10 devices, but that wouldn't affect any updates to the program.

NIS just was updated a couple of weeks ago. We will have to see, but I would think that NIS would work with Win 10 when it comes out. After all, users have been renewing the program all year.

When the Beta program starts for the Norton 2016 products, you will see a section in the Forum for it. There may be also an Announcement about it also. This is just my opinion, nothing official about it.

Since NS and NSwB doesn't work with win 10 now, I highly doubt that NIS would, but you never know. If nothing has been found in Search, then no one has posted anything about it, at least not as a separate thread about it.
