What versions of Windows are supported when using Zoom?

Zoom crashes immediately after startup.
The image disappears quickly.
While actually supporting the Zoom meeting, such troubles occurred one after another.
What was common to these troubles was …


There were a series of serious troubles such as Zoom not even starting.

I couldn’t solve it even after reviewing the video settings.

In such a case, you may suspect Windows.


Looking at the Zoom site, the supported operating systems are:

  • Mac OS X with MacOS 10.7 or later
  • Limited functionality (Zoom version 3.6) MacOS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)
  • Windows 10
  • Windows 8 or 8.1
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista with SP1 or later
  • Windows XP with SP3 or later
  • Ubuntu 12.04 or later
  • Mint 17.1 or later
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 or later
  • Oracle Linux 6.4 or later
  • CentOS 6.4 or later
  • Fedora 21 or later
  • OpenSUSE 13.2 or later
  • ArchLinux (64-bit only)

However, all the people who were informed that Zoom couldn’t be used were using Windows 7 .

And a screen I had never seen was displayed.

The supported operating systems are supposed to work with Windows XP SP3 or later, but in reality, you can think of it as Windows 8.1 or later.

Especially if you’re thinking of using Zoom for work, it’s a good idea to keep it on Windows 10.

In addition, there are some functions that depend on the performance of the personal computer, so it is recommended to use a high-performance personal computer to some extent when conducting seminars with 30 or more people at Zoom.
