I checked release notes of CIPC which says
Due to changes to Microsoft Internet Explorer on Microsoft Windows 10, if users set Microsoft Internet Exploreras their default browser on Microsoft Windows 10, user must uncheck Enable Protected Mode in Internet Explorer Security settings. If users do not disable Protected Mode, they will not be able to start the Cisco Unified CM Self-Care portal from the Cisco IP Communicator Preferences menu.
Cisco IP Communicator now supports Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 10.5.2.
It should be supported with 8.6.6
In addition to the nice info shared by Aman i would suggest that it appears that Windows 10 is not yet fully tested with CIPC. So, it may work but you can wait for the Windows 10 to be listed under the supported OS in the release notes
It seems that CIPC version 8.6.6 is not compatible with windows 10. Most of the end users say that the CIPC changes state to not responding, so they have to close the application and run it again. How can this problem be solved?
I have the following problem.
Windows 10 64Bits.

Cisco IP Communicator has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working properly. Close the Program.
Someone with this problem?
Any solution to the case?
Two part answer as of a year later.
This answer is dated April 25, 2017 (2017-04-25)
This answer was updated September 27, 2017.
CIPC 8.6.6 documentation last update was September 2016.
8.6.4 was released in 2014.
8.6.5 was released in 2015.
8.6.6 was released in 2016.
IF Cisco keeps this schedule 8.6.7 might be released in Q4 of 2017.
...but don't hold your breathe
Just dropping a note to keep interest here. Looks like currently the only current version of Windows not supported would be 64 bit Win 10.
Where did this statement about Windows 10 32-bit only come from?
I do not see this in the release notes which appear to state 32bit and 64 are both supported.
Here is the latest release notes as of checking today:
The first page states:
The following features have been added to Release 8.6.5 of Cisco IP Communicator:
The Requirements Table listed in the release notes Mentions 64-bit multiple times as shown below.
If 64-bit is not compatible, i would never be able to tell from the release notes.
Table 1 Minimum and Recommended Requirements for Cisco IP Communicator
Internal Hardware (Microsoft Windows 10)
So based on the release notes it appears that Win10 64 bit is supported? Is anyone actually using CIPC on Win10 64 bit to verify it truly does work? Has anyone ran into any issues with CIPC 8.6.6 on Win10 64 bit?
We have had a few issues with 22.214.171.124 crashing on Win 10 64-bit. TAC reviewed the logs and determined we were hitting these bugs:
They supplied version 126.96.36.199 and we haven't had any issues since.
