    Windows 10 Compatitibility


    I am running windows 8.1 64 bit single language
    1. How can I verify that my non-windows applications will be compatible with windows 10?
    2. My biggest concerns are the compatibility of Kaspersky, Dragon Nuance Speech recognition, Autocrit, Scriviner and Whitesmoke - all being quite expensive.
