The end of support for Windows XP is close
MSAB will introduce support for XRY on the Windows 8 platform later this year. Conversely we will be ceasing technical support for XRY on the Windows XP operating system before the end of 2013.
We are giving you advance notice, so you can have the maximum time to plan ahead and advise relevant IT departments of this impending change.
Windows 7 support is not affected by this announcement and will continue as normal for both 32-bit and 64-bit support.
Microsoft has announced that it will cease all support for Windows XP in 2014 now they have launched Windows 8 and we anticipate increasing demand for XRY to run on this new platform from customers. As a result we will be introducing support for Windows 8 this year to meet this demand.
As we manufacture a validated forensic tool we are required to test XRY on all variations of all operating system platforms we support. The time and work load implications mean we cannot support legacy operating systems indefinitely, so as these Microsoft operating systems continue to diverge we have to move towards more modern versions.
There is a high probability XRY will continue to work on Windows XP for some time after we cease official support, as it has worked on XP since 2004, nevertheless official support will cease by the end of the year.
