Any Erica users out there? A friend of mine has been very successfully using the Erica system for about eight years. If you're a user you know that it runs on Windows XP. He recently got a message from his Google Chrome web browser that XP will no longer be supported. Has anybody upgraded their Windows operating system and successfully run all of their Lifemate programs? thanks!!

If he's just worried about Chrome, he can use Firefox, no?

The guys at Eyetellect should be able to tell you what's been tested with the newer Windows OS.

I had to purchase a new computer recently because of the problem described by Pete. Microsoft quit supporting XP two or three years ago. Google Chrome continued to support the XP operating system until now. My computer did not have the capacity to update to Windows 7 higher, so I got a refurbished one through Staples. I'm not familiar with ERICA, so this message may not be useful. I use Next Up Talker and haven't located my CD to load it on the new machine. I have an older laptop with the program on it that I use at the doctor's office.

He has tried Firefox but didn't like it... He may give it another try. Thanks!

There are as many FF extensions or more as for Chrome. I'll wager whatever he needs to make FF more Chrome-like is available. Let me know if he has specific needs. Also, if he has a 64-bit processor, he might try Waterfox, a FF clone that runs faster on some comps.

Thanks again for your suggestions.. I'll pass them along. He's also going to contact Eyetellect.
