Elektron Websocket is a server-side API, it does mean that you can use any WebSocket client library which supported by the programming language you currently use connecting to the server. If the WebSocket library still supported on Windows 7 your application should be able to connect to the server.

Do you have an example of the client library that we can use on Windows 7 for .Net Framework c#?

You may try opensource WebSocket library such as

Our c# example provided on Github also use the websocket-sharp

Hello @milan.milas

If you running the WebSocket application in web browsers, it is not depending on the OS version (Windows 7, Windows 10 ,etc). It is based on whether that web browser supports WebSocket connection or not, which the older versions of IE do not support.
