Well that was pretty smart. I have added your email to my list of
contacts to always solicit advice for ... nothing...

No, it simply clarifies it as to what I meant.

You can run a car on alcohol that is not meant to run on alcohol.

Doesn't mean you should do it.

Again, you have an extremely low bar for the meaning of 'nicely' - and
I'll go ahead and add 'ordinary programs' to that list.

Microsoft is a legal fiction, so cannot say anything. I concede that the
marketing morons who work for said legal fiction say silly things like
the above, but that doesn't mean you should follow their minimum advice.

Besides - those minimums are often hard coded minimums, meaning, the
software literally will refuse to install if you don't meet them.

Remove it and I'll be happy to help you with any other problems you may
still have. I only charge $75/hour for remote support, if I resolve your
issues within the first 15 minutes the cost is only $25.
