Is it possible to install V22 on Windows 7?

Hello,
I tried to install V22 on my desktop, still with my favorite Windows. It installed OK but when starting I got a System Error message:
"The program can't start because api-ms-win-core-processtopology-obsolete-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling...".
Any clues?
Thanks

  • Dear Joao,
    seems the missign DLL is from a later Win 8/10 ...
    you might check the web, if there is an official or inofficial way to get that newer module installed into Win 7 ...
    many greetings !

    Hi Torsten, thanks for the tip.
    I found and tried to install it (2 different versions, instructions from https://www.dll4free.com, but didn't succeed. Opening the DLL with Notepad, it mentions a file API-MS-Win-Core-ProcessTopology-Obsolete-L1-1-0.pdb, that I couldn't find.
    So unless any other tip, I can't install V22 on Windows 7.
    Commercially, the argument that BricsCAD is much less demanding in terms of OS is fading.
    I had installed AutoCAD 2022, just with a modification of the Setup.xml file.
    Cheers!
