Some say it can and others say it cannot. For the record I'm in the camp that it works for me. This past weekend we purchased a new desktop tower with Windows 10 for a family member to replace the older XP tower. Using the MSWorks 9.0 disks I was able to install to out-of-box Windows 10 on the tower with no errors and no compatibility mode.
So now I have MSWorks 4.5 working under Windows 10 on a laptop and MSWorks 9.0 on a Windows 10 tower. Both were loaded using the original MS Works CDs and the original installation codes. Another for the record, I've never found a viable replacement (Open Office or otherwise) for using my existing MS Works files.
