Windows XP Support


I am sure that you will not have failed to notice that Microsoft will be ending support for XP from April 8th, 2014.  However, do your clients know and have they made provision for their ARev systems? 

For those of you who have been working too hard to pick up this small snippet of news, the keys details are:

After April 8, 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC.  If you continue to use Windows XP, your computer might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.

An unsupported version of Windows will no longer receive software updates from Windows Update.  These include security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software, which can steal your personal information.  Windows Update also installs the latest software updates to improve the reliability of Windows—new drivers for your hardware and more.

Advanced Revelation will not run on workstations installed with Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8.  If you are running an application built with Advanced Revelation we strongly suggest that you consider upgrading to OpenInsight using Arev32.

Running ARev – Don’t get get caught short on time!!!


With Microsoft having now withdrawn support for Windows XP and more and more workstations being purchased with windows 7, we are seeing ARev users frantically trying to make the next move to keep their systems running on these new operating systems.  Whilst some people fight to find workarounds, others are hastily looking at shortened ARev32 conversion projects.

Don’t get caught out and find yourself explaining why you have not made the move to ARev32 or made alternative provision for the future.  Give me a call or drop me an email to discuss the future of your ARev system before time is against you.
