Product Lifecycles & Support

Maximize your investments and strategically plan for the future

As part of our commitment to work with you every step of the way, Microsoft and its partners extend support and services to optimize the performance of your intelligent system. Microsoft’s support lifecycle policy provides consistent and predictable guidelines for product support availability when a product releases and throughout that product’s life. Our support policy establishes guidelines for the term during which Microsoft will provide automatic fixes, updates and online technical assistance.

Fifteen years of product availability, ten years of support, no-cost security updates, and premier account management are key advantages of choosing the Microsoft platform.

If you own a device or solution developed with Windows Embedded software, please contact the respective manufacturer for support.

Prior versions of Windows Embedded, including Windows Embedded 7, 8 and 8.1 products, have limited support when running on new processors and chipsets from manufacturers like Intel, AMD, NVidia, and Qualcomm. For more information, please see the Support Lifecycle FAQ.
