If you don't like (as me) to use the incredible slow JasperSoftStudio and also don't need any new features of JasperReports > 6.x, you could of course run iReport also in Windows10.

The only thing you should  be aware: iReport was designed in NetBeans and is NOT compatible with any Java Version > 1.7

So you will have to install/copy a JRE7 to your local machine and edit the iReport.conf  (located in your iReport install directory unter etc ... eg "C:Program Files (x86)JaspersoftiReport-5.6.0etcireport.conf") and point to the JRE7 directory:


# default location of JDK/JRE, can be overridden by using --jdkhome <dir> switch
jdkhome="C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7"

keep in mind, that any (newer) Java Setup could tell you, that an installed Java 1.7 is unsecure and should be deinstalled - you must ignore this warning (or your JRE7 will be uninstalled automatically
