Microsoft Premier Support UK announced on the 15 Jun 2011 the retrial of support for Office XP, Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008 SP0 as of July 12 2011
After this date:
- Customers who are still using these products will not be able to contact Microsoft support for assistance.
- No security patches will be made available for these products.
- Self-help online support will continue to be available for a minimum of 12 months.
Anyone continuing to use these products are therefore at risk if they continue to use these products in a production environment. Premier Support customers however, can as an interim measure explore the possibility of purchasing a Custom Support Agreement to continue using the product but should only do so as an interim measure while migrating to a newer platform.
