What does 2020 mean to your Business Critical Applications

Last Updated: 8/4/2019

As you may know, support for Windows 7 operating systems ends on January 2020, so what does this mean for the software applications that run your company?

Several solution providers have already announced that their new software versions will not be supported on Windows 7 systems, including SolidWorks and Adobe Creative Cloud. Several other companies are expected to make similar announcements before the end of the quarter due to the security risks that an unsupported Windows 7 will present.

What about your current software? To assist with your migration planning Microsoft has provided a tool for public use to check for compatibility status of current software to Windows 10. The software to consider checking can range from Accounting solutions, Production software, Anti-Virus, VPN Software, and many others.

With the Windows 10 Compatibility Check, you simply enter the name the software and the search results will show all version of the questioned software and its compatibility status. If you cannot find your software in the list, it does not necessarily mean it is unsupported, the company has not officially released any compatibility data and will need to reach out to directly.
