Unreal engine 4.18.1 hotfix in windows 10
A month ago I upgraded to a new computer with the intention of returning to experiment with using Unreal engine after a 14 month period, and thus having to use windows 10.
Today I have noticed that Unreal engine 4.18 has a hotfix update available. When I go to the Epic launcher and select Update, I get the message
" Your computer does not meet the following requirements to run Unreal engine. Are you sure you want to install?
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 version 6.1(RQ-0002)
Unreal Engine will be susceptible to crashes, data loss, and corruption if ran. "
Does this mean Windows 10 does not have the necessary resources to run Unreal Engine effectively and with confidence?
Or is it that Windows 10 is fine and this is just an installation glitch that overlooks that a windows 10 machine is being used and assumes it is installing on a Windows 7 environment?
Most things so far are fine running Unreal Engine in Windows 10 (except the windows 10 wireless mouse-keyboard glitches). So, before I apply this hotfix update, I need to know with confidence that I can apply it in a Windows 10 environment.
Thanks in advance for any answer that can help here.

I'll admit that it's a bit odd to see this while on Win10:
On the other hand, I've yet to hear UE4 refused to function properly because it was running under Win10.
If I were to judge I'd say the following is the culprit here:
