Windows 7 OS Advisory for UH-owned computers: ITS currently recommends that the UH community use Windows 7 Pro, instead of Windows XP. All ITS-supported applications and web applications work on Windows 7.
Microsoft will end support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. You should plan to migrate off Windows XP by the end of 2013. See Windows lifecycle fact sheet for more information.
This page shows the status of what applications were tested. Caution: common functionality was tested and might not be as comprehensive as certification by the vendor would require. If in doubt, please check with the vendor if they have more updated information regarding their application support. UH applications that do not work with Windows 7 fully or partially are listed in red.
