When will Windows Embedded 7 Standard out of support? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all:

    Our product currently works on the Windows Embedded 7 Standard, and distributed globally. Now we want to know when would the Windows Embedded 7 Standard out of support, so we can decide when would we move to the win 10 platform, from product strategy perspective.

    While the claim of Microsoft looks vague

    https://www.microsoft.com/windowsembedded/en-us/product-lifecycles.aspx

    So is there any affirmatory announce of the support?

  • According to the Website WES7 SP1 support will end in 10/13/2020, which is also an end of ship date. An OEM can no longer ship new products with WES7 SP1 after that date. Sometimes there are wavers depending on the OEM and product. 

    I suggest that you contact Microsoft distributor for more information. I would recommend moving to Windows 10 IoT Enterprise now rather than later.
