What features of CCES require Windows 7 Professional or higher?
I would like to perform a secondary install of CCES on my home computer (Win 7 home premium) , to at least test compilation and linkage when working from home
Our statement of compatibility for CCES is really aligned with what we actively test against and validate the tools to run on. Since there are very few customers using the Home variants of Windows it's not something that we explicitly test and guarantee compatibility with. That being said I'm not aware of any specific feature in Pro/Enterprise that the tools rely on so in theory it should "just work". The only downside to using Home is if you were to run into an issue that you needed help with that was only reproducible on Home and not Pro/Enterprise. Historically speaking though I don't think I've ever seen that be the case so you should be good to at least give it a try.
Thanks for the quick reply.
I appreciate the problem regarding support (about to worsen with Win 10!)
I already have a version of eclipse running for Jave, so it should work
