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.
