    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.
