Windows 10 support

Question: I see always, when there is a new Installshield version released, as part of the new features list something like: Windows 8 ready, Windows 8.1 ready, Windows 10 ready.
What does this actually mean? I can also install my software package developed with Installshield 2008 on Windows 8.1, Windows 10 etc. without problems....

Can someone explain me what Installshield really mean when saying eg windows 10 ready?

It means we have tested our run-time support for the new operating system, and typically it also means we have made it easy to specify whether your product supports the new operating system. However nothing InstallShield does can ensure your application will or will not work on a different version of Windows than you have verified. The problems are rare for most applications, as Microsoft works hard to ensure compatibility, but they do occur.
