For anyone who is unsure of whether you can use the legacy Variax guitars under Windows 10, I can confirm that you can. I went to the download section and just selected Windows 8 as the OS and downloaded Line 6 Monkey and Workbench (non HD version), ran the installers, hooked up my Variax USB Interface and Variax 500 and everything worked perfectly first time. I had no issues with Java or the installation on the drivers.

 

This statement is valid as of April 2018

I just did the exact same thing and am having an issue with java runtime environment. Did you download Java version 8 after Java timed out?

When you get a JAVA error... just go to java.com and install the latest version. If JAVA complains that it isn't compatible with your browser just ignore it - that won't matter.

I didn’t have a problem with Java at all. I remembered seeing a post about the installer under Windows 10 and just unchecked Java in the installer and let it use the version already installed on my PC. I forgot to mention that step in the original post.

Just a word of note... this may not work for everyone.

Java isn't usually installed on a machine by default... it likely came with a different software installation along the way.

I can not find any Workbench other than the HD, that is a problem... Not under legacy product either

 

If you are looking for the older version of Workbench on the Line 6 site it won't show up if you limit the OS to Windows 10 in the search. Change the OS to Windows 7 and it will show up... even though it works fine in Windows 10.
