NWDS 7.5 running in windows 7 64bit

We are forced to upgrade our SAP netweaver PI to version 7.5. Now I want to prepare the development clients for this upgrade. Therefore I downloaded NWDS7.5 latest patch from SAP marketplace and I tried to start NWDS on a Windows 7 64bit client bu ti get an error saying that the eclipse.exe cannot be executed on my current windows version.

Checking the SAP installation notes I see that the software requirement is a windows 10 client installation.

Is that really the truth or did I something wrong in my installation steps ?

    Dear Christian,

    It is really true. The NWDS 7.5 requires 64-bit version Windows 10.

    Here you can find the official documentation:

    • What you do share is slightly different - SAP RT ECLIPSE 4.6 . I believe this is only the SAP RunTime.

      The other plug-ins in the NWDS 7.5 (which actually is Eclipse) probably make the difference. It is interesting that according to the information this SAP RT Eclipse 4.6 is not supported any more (Supported Until 30.06.2017) and yet the Status is Released "green".

      This is a screenshot from the "SAP NetWeaver7.5 Planning Product Availability Matrix (Planning PAM) incl. SAP NetWeaverAS ABAP 7.51 Innovation Package" - 3. Worspace Support

      I have some discussion with some of the developers (of different perspectives of the NWDS) and they have confirmed as well - the NWDS 7.5 should be installed only on Windows 10.
