Earlier in the year, Microsoft support for Windows 7 (extended support) ended on January 14, 2020. In addition to this, Windows 8 mainstream support ended on January 9, 2018.
From an Apparel21 perspective, Microsoft end of support means both versions will no longer be supported by Apparel21 from version 2020.3 (due Q4 2020).
What does this mean for our customers?
From version 2020.3 onwards, Apparel21 will no longer be testing on Windows 7 and 8 operating systems. Should our customers experience any issues on version 2020.3 of Apparel21 that stem from end of life Windows operating system, Apparel21 will not be resolving issues related to these versions.
What should I do now?
From a changeover perspective, if you are still running on the old Windows versions 7 or 8 and if you plan to upgrade Apparel21 at the end of the year, please ensure that you plan to update your operating system to Windows 10 prior to your Apparel21 version 2020.3 upgrade.
