Windows XP Support Ends July 1

Windows XP will not be supported by ITS Desktop Support after July 1, 2013. The following is an excerpt from an ITS Web page.

  • Windows XP machines will continue to work on campus after July 1. Internet, email, MS Office, etc. will continue to function. Future updates of software/hardware/printers may not include options for Windows XP.
  • The ITS Desktop Support team will continue full support of Windows XP until July 1, 2013. 
  • Microsoft has announced that extended support will be maintained through April 8, 2014. Microsoft Mainstream support for XP ended April 2009.
  • Full migration to Windows 7 will be done through both re-imaging of newer computers and the retirement of older hardware over time.

We would be happy to schedule and work with anyone who has Windows XP on a supported computer to possibly upgrade to Windows 7. We also would offer some extended support for folks who may be getting new equipment after July 1 and assist them with the transition to Windows 7.
