FinishLynx 9.02+ is Fully Compatible with Windows 10
Since the release of Windows 10 on July 29, 2015, our tech support team has gotten several questions about its compatibility with FinishLynx. We’re pleased to announce that the FinishLynx timing software and its components are fully compatible with the Windows 10 operating system. If you are looking to upgrade your primary capture computer from Windows 8/8.1 to Windows 10, there should be no problems using the FinishLynx software to time races. If you are upgrading from Windows 7 or an earlier version of Windows, we recommend that you update your computer’s USB drivers to ensure compatibility with the ATEN (UC232A), Prolific, Sabrent, and other USB-to-serial adapters.
