    Probably they don't, but I think the question is worth asking, just in case.

    As ""everybody knows"", the "official" builds of MKVtoolnix are created and distributed by the author himself (Moritz "Mosu" Bunkus).

    The current problem for the users of Windows 7: versions above 64.0.0.45 require Windows 10 or 11,

    but only because Mosu always uses the "latest and greatest" version of the cross-platform GUI-thing called "Qt".

    As long as mkvtoolnix is built with Qt 5.x or lower, it can run on Windows 7.

    Recently updating to 67.0.0 indeed gave errors. Annoying, I agree.
    BTW version 66.0.0 is running fine here on Windows 7.

    Just found out version 67.0.0 revision 006 build is "done with Qt 5" - whatever the hell that means

    Anyways, a quick and dirty test says it install and runs ok on Win7. Read from here: https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1967202#post1967202

    Yes, but Mosu himself also wrote that the downgrade to Qt 5 is temporary and he will return to Qt 6 as soon as the issue with the multiple-monitor setups gets fixed.

    Yup, read that too. Hopefully multiple-monitor setup will keep raising issues with Qt6

    UPDATE:

    The last version of MKVtoolnix compatible with Windows 7 is: 67.0.0.27.

    Download link: https://mkvtoolnix.download/windows/continuous/

    COMMENTS:

    After reading Mosu's last posts in the MKVtoolnix thread @ Doom9's forum, I can only conclude that, if he were not a highly-skilled computer programmer, he surely would be a very-good lawyer.
    Notice, this is not exactly a compliment.
    Some/many programmers love to consider themselves "rational people 24-by-7", but the fact is, they rarely are.
    Mosu makes no distinction between improving MKVtoolnix itself and pushing the QT GUI framework whatever.

    mkvmerge, mkvextract, etc, are command-line tools, so they don't need a GUI at all, to begin with, and more importantly, they don't need to depend on the QT thing.
    But now they do, because Mosu now thinks QT is better than the well-known file magic.mgc...
    Oh well.

    El Heggunte Many thanks for the link. Presently I have 64 which I had in my archives after falling foul of the latest that won't work on Win7.

    Correct the compatible version with win7 is the version el heggunte mention NOT before.


    So from now and at future mkvtoolnix stop support win7 and must download unofficial version that support win7?

    https://mkvtoolnix.download/windows/continuous/32-bit/

    and

    https://mkvtoolnix.download/windows/continuous/64-bit/

    All builds between version 64.0.0.45 and version 67.0.0.1 were compiled with QT 6, so they will not run on Windows 7.

    I have compiled 64-bit mkvtoolnix version 69.0.0 with Qt 5. My target use is for Windows 8.1 so that is the only OS I tested. As per the thread title, this is definitely NON-OFFICIAL and I will certainly remove it if posting it here is not acceptable.

    You create the program?
    If you do why you stop support older windows? For example win7?
    Portable edition?

    Many THANKS! for the non-official build.

    It is running fine on my 64-bit Windows 7.

    My only complaint is the use of an installer.
    Why use an installer when all one needs is manually overwrite the previous .EXEs and folders with the new ones
    Anyway, THANKS! again.

    If people wanted programs to work with outdated systems(with security risks)then programs themself won't get updated due to lack of updated system files,heck we'd all still be on windows xp.

    Good point about the installer. Code from the developers workflow that can be omitted.

    And to be clear, the developer states Qt 5.9.0 is the minimum required version to build. He simply doesn't provide such builds.

    https://gitlab.com/mbunkus/mkvtoolnix#21-requirements

    At some point Qt 6 will probably become a hard requirement.

    Thanks for this. Do you think you can also build the 32 bits version ?
    Quote Quote  
  25. If it helps I'm using an official build: MKVToolNix GUI V68.0.0 ('The Curtain') 32-bit.
    This is on Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.
    It works like all the former versions did.
    How do I check which OT version ?
    I assume is is in the 5.9.0 category but we all know what assume means.

    For myself I won't be going to a newer Windows version until I'm absolutely forced to.
    So far most everything is working fine.

    @autodidact

    Would you be able to post a brief guide on how you complied with 5.9.0 to get a Win 7/8 working build?

    The Qt version used should be in the Help menu under System information. Qt 5 is a long-term support release and my build uses 5.15.5 which I think is the latest in that line and remains compatible with Win 7/8.

    The best guide would be the developers and it is what I followed.

    Thanks for the build.
    To try to be able to make my ownn builds, i take a look at the guide in post #28, cloned mxe, but after, the guide doesn't match... In the git cloned package, there is no /packaging/windows/ directory, there is not even a /packaging directory.
    And, no clue how to "choose" the QT version you want...

    Edit
    Ok... i thought mxe was something to build MKVToolnix, it's not, it's MKVToolnix wich needs mxe...
    I'll git MKVToolnix, and probably find this directory...

    Edit 2
    Ok, i have mxe and mkvtoolnix. Unfortunately, i have no idea how to change the QT part, and use 5.x version...
    Just try to run setup_cross_compilation_env and then rake (from the directory where there is setup_cross_compilation_env file), but the rake end up in faillure :
    # rake
    (in /f/PRG/MKVToolnix/mkvtoolnix)
    rake aborted!
    build-config not found: please run ./configure
    /f/PRG/MKVToolnix/mkvtoolnix/rake.d/config.rb:16:in `read_build_config'
    /f/PRG/MKVToolnix/mkvtoolnix/rakefile:42:in `<top (required)>'
    (See full trace by running task with --trace)
