Microsoft Products - End of Life

If you are currently using any of these items, and still want to have Microsoft support, we advise upgrading your products.

The most effected software versions are Windows 7 and Server 2008r2.  If you are on Windows 7, or older, we recommend upgrading to Windows 10. Same goes for servers, if you are on Server 2008r2 or older it is recommended to go to Server 2016 or later.
