Subject: Testing of Microsoft Windows 10 Operating System with EDESuite PC Products

We have completed testing of Microsoft Windows 10 as an operating system for our EDESuite PC products, and our testing results indicate that schools should be able to proceed with use of Windows 10 without encountering any issues in either EDExpress or Direct Loan (DL) Tools for Windows.

During our testing, we used the 64-bit Windows 10 Professional operating system on PCs with varying hardware for the following EDESuite products:

  • EDExpress for Windows 2019-2020, Release 2.0

  • Direct Loan (DL) Tools for Windows, Release 18.0

EDExpress and DL Tools users should continue to adhere to the recommended minimum or optimal system configurations for running our EDESuite PC products, as described in the March 7, 2017 electronic announcement posted to the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) website.
