For clarity: 
MassLynx 4.2 is supported on both Windows 7 and Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 1607.
MassLynx 4.2 Acquisition PCs are only fully supported on P520 and P720 PCs supplied by Waters, on the Windows 10 Waters supplied image

Processing MassLynx data: MassLynx 4.2 SCN 982 Desktop is available. Customers with a Windows 10 PC supplied by a 3rd party may choose to install and use MassLynx 4.2 SCN 982 for data processing, on the understanding that such a configuration has not been tested by Waters and is not supported.

Legacy Instruments: The plan is to release additional Masslynx 4.2 SCNs to support Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 1607 for some legacy instruments in 2019 (see Additional Information).
