LR 5.7.1 seems to run fine on my Win10 Preview-9926. Anyone getting problems with it?

There was a miscommunication there -- Windows 10 is definitely supported. See the official system requirements: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/sys...

John I am not seeing where it says lightroom5 is supported by Windows 10 I am under the impression Adobe are trying to force me to take Adobe CC if they can get LR6 to work under win10 then why can they not do the same for LR5 it's called loyalty or rather lack of

LR5 is outdated software so it's no longer being updated or tested on new operating systems. That said, I haven't heard of any notable issues with LR5 on Windows 10. It's just not officially supported.

I can't remember John, as I'm primarily Mac based. I'm going mainly on the feedback from numerous other people. Have a read through the comments on my Windows 10 release blog post for other people's feedback: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/lightro...
