Will ProShow run on Windows RT or Windows 10 S?

ProShow, ProShow Gold, ProShow Producer

ProShow Gold and ProShow Producer will not run on Windows RT or Windows 10 S. These operating systems are limited to apps installed from the Windows Store only. 

Surface with Windows RT is a new tablet from Microsoft. It uses an ARM processor (CPU) and comes with the Windows RT operating system, a variation of Windows 8 specifically optimized for the ARM architecture.

Windows 10 S is a specific configuration of Windows 10 Pro that is streamlined for security and performance. Windows 10 S has many of the features of Windows 10 Pro, but for security and performance it exclusively runs app from the Windows Store only.

One of the major differences between Windows RT and Windows 10 S and other editions of Windows, including Windows 8 and Windows 10 is its lack of support for desktop applications.

Windows RT and Windows 10 S will run apps from the Windows Store but cannot execute your standard Windows desktop applications. You’ll need Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, Windows 10, Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, or a prior version of Windows in order to run desktop applications like ProShow Gold and ProShow Producer.
