Hi

I was thinking about buying Trezor.  My PC is quite old and runs Windows Vista.  On the Trezor website it simply states that Windows, MacOS and Linux is supported.  Do you know if the Trezor will run okay on a Windows Vista PC?

I would think so as Vista is still a Windows OS. But I would double check with Trezor/Satoshi Labs themselves just to be safe

Yes. Even if the major softwares weren't supported, you can just use the vanilla wallet from TREZOR[1] which is a chrome extension and it's supported everywhere. Or MyEtherWaller to manage your Ethereum wallet.

So basically it should work, but according to their site: There is full support for Windows (version 7 and higher), which means if you have issues in vista they won't take responsibility.

Vista is a buggy system and if your PC manages to run it it will surely run windows 7. You just need 1ghz processor and 2GB RAM for win7. You can find better computers lying in dumpsters.

thanks guys, to be honest I know I should be replacing my PC, had it since 2007  Undecided maybe it would be good as a mining rig  Wink

I'll ask Trezor but as you point out they'll probably just say 'Win 7 or higher for full support.'

Much better to upgrade your windows OS to windows 7 if its still can be upgrade with a minimum requirements for windows 7
Check this for system requirements of windows 7 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10737/windows-7-system-requirements
If hits the requirements of your pc there is possibility that you can upgrade your os to windows 7 much compatible and supported by trezor wallet.
Or use some already moded windows 7 optimized..
