Durametric question regarding computer operating systems

I have a Durametric I purchased used and it works fine. I currently have the software loaded on a laptop running Windows 7 . If I change the operating system to Windows 10 will the Durametric still work ? I have an older laptop running Windows XP will the Durametric run on that ? Anyone running the Durametric on a Chromebook or tablet ?

Durametric works well on Windows 10 machines. As for tablets, they have to be Windows based as well.

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to mention that I have been running it successfully on an $80 8.9" tablet that I bought on Amazon.

the brand is Insignia and it runs Windows 10.

Much better than hauling a laptop around and you put it in the glove compartment!

Lots of windows tablets available these days for reasonable prices....and windows 10 works very well in tablets.

I picked up a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 at a thrift shop for $15 with Windows 7 on it. It's a bit slow overall (Atom processor), but runs the Durametric software just fine. I like having a keyboard, but I think in this case a tablet would be even better.
