CDXZipStream Windows XP Support Ending 12/31/2017
We will be ending our support of CDXZipStream on Windows
XP operating systems on December 31, 2017. Support of Windows XP
by Microsoft was discontinued in April 2014. We've been
continuing to support XP since it is the third most popular operating
system still being used on about 7% of PC's. We urge you to
migrate from Windows XP as soon as possible, not because of
CDXZipStream but due to major security flaws in that
operating system. These vulnerabilities led to the WannaCry
We will be upgrading CDXZipStream in 2018 to support
Office 2019 in a new Microsoft framework that does not work on XP. If
you have our current version or classic product installed it will
continue to work and your license to use it will not expire. But
this new version of CDXZipStream will not run or be supported on
Windows XP. CDXZipStream will still work with all operating
systems later than Windows 7.
Also, as a reminder in last month's newsletter we
announced that we will also be ending our support for the classic
version of CDXZipStream at the end of this year.
