Windows 10 and .NET 4.6 support for Autodesk products

You would like to know which Autodesk products are supported on Microsoft® Windows® 10. 

All Autodesk products support Windows 10 but it depends on the version which exact Autodesk products is supported for Windows 10. 
The most common issue is the inability to do a new installation of an Autodesk product on a Windows 10 operating system due to the Windows 10 reliance on .NET 4.6. In most cases, Autodesk products installed on an earlier operating system that was later upgraded to Windows 10 will continue to work as expected. Many of these issues have been corrected by the most recent Windows 10 updates. Update your Windows 10 installation to receive the latest updates. 

Note: This can also apply to Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 if .NET 4.6 has been installed (.NET 4.6 may be installed by Microsoft components such as Internet Explorer 11, Edge, or by third-party software). For these operating systems, Microsoft is officially recommending that users uninstall .NET 4.6 prior to installing any blocked Autodesk software, and then reinstall .NET 4.6 afterwards.
