Being a perpetual early adopter of software updates we are already up and running Windows 10 on our server, laptops and even a Surface. The upgrades went without any issues and we have tested: Catia, Abaqus, Isight, Tosca and fe-safe with the DSLS (Dassault Systèms License Server) hosting the license files. One of our customers, Optimax Systems Inc has installed their DSLS on Windows 10 as well and provided their installation notes for DSLS and Abaqus.
