After extensive testing, we can confirm that SilverFast 8 software is fully compatible with Windows 10. SilverFast HDR 8 and SilverFast HDR Studio 8 can therefore be used from version 8.5.0r1 or later with the latest Microsoft operating system.

The compatibility of the SilverFast scanner software is also dependent on the manufacturer's device drivers. If you already use SilverFast 8, and if the scanner manufacturer provides Windows 10 -compatible drivers for this device, then you can use your scanner with SilverFast 8 on Windows 10 (64bit) systems.
