Halion 6 with Windows 7?

Will Halion 6/Groove Agent 5 work with Windows 7? Are there any issues?

I note the system requirements for GA says win 7 compatible, but Halion says win 8.

I’ve searched the forum, as I’m sure this has been asked before, but I’m coming up with “too common”.

Many thanks!


Groove Agent 5 works. haven’t used Halion

Thanks, it looks like I’m out of luck with H6…

Halion 6 works with W7, 8 & 10.

Excellent, thanks for letting me know.

Just downloaded it yesterday. I tried it in W10 but hadn’t on W7 yet. In the download shop, the requirements say 7, 8 & 10.
Another user mentioned that he’s used it on 7.

Indeed. HALion 6 was not supported on Windows 7 when first released, but official support was added later - click here for confirmation.

You should not expect Windows 7 support in any future releases of Steinberg products; as many here are aware, there is no official Windows 7 support in Cubase 10.5 and some of the video features do not work on Windows 7.

You know, I suspected this happened. When I first entertained the idea of H6, it was not supported on W7 and that’s why I wrote it off. Although I found out later that it did work on 7, the requirements said otherwise. Later, when I was reading up on H6, I saw that it was now supported on 7.
Your post confirmed I wasn’t losing my memory.
Thanks! :slight_smile:
