It is as close to impossible as anything can be that software that runs on Windows 8 will not run on Windows 10.
I've done a lot of upgrades and worked on the machines of others who've done upgrades and have yet to see a single piece of software that runs on Windows 8 that won't work on Windows 10.
Try installing it (or reinstalling it) to verify whether it functions or not.

If this is an OEM computer that was upgraded from Windows 8 it may have a factory restore partition that is still intact. If not you can download the Windows 8.1 media creation tool. If the computer came pre-installed with Windows 8 the key is embedded in firmware. Once online the computer will self activate.

See if using compatibility mode works.

Then you will need to get an OEM license of Windows 8.1 which would be the cheapest. I would at least try compatibility mode to see if your program runs.
