We have several EDI programs to connect with suppliers and customers. We build parts for autos. We're concerned that the programs won't work on Windows 8 machines. Experience has taught us to be concerned, there's even one important one that won't run on Vista or Windows 7.
If we order a new PC with Windows 8 pre-installed, can I run the Windows 7 upgrade install (that we have licenses for)?

I'm glad we asked this before purchasing. I'm sure our vendor can help us locate the right product.
