Sure, it’s been long announced that Microsoft will drop support for Windows 7, but that doesn’t automatically mean that Nextcloud would drop its support for Windows 7. In fact, it seems like this has been decided on a whim, as my Nextcloud client keeps trying to download and install the latest version even though it’s not compatible with Windows 7. Of course the installation fails every time - without a single mention of why it fails - and even though I select “Skip this version”, the client keeps bugging me on every startup and also in the Windows “speech bubble” that I should restart the application so that the new version can be installed.
I think the proper way to end support for Windows 7 would be to release one last version that doesn’t try to update itself. Perhaps upon installing this last version, there could be some message letting the user actually know that support has been dropped and that no more versions will be downloaded.
