Microsoft to Stop Support of Windows XP. What Do We Do Now?

One of our readers need your help solving a problem they are having. "We see Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP next year. The PC-based controls we've deployed over the years — some with RT kernels, some without — range from Windows CE to Windows 7 and more than a few NT in between. We don't have any real problems with the systems we have out there, and we don’t worry too much about installing updates that might upset a old but stable system. We'll suggest an updated OS usually when a customer buys a new machine or has a hardware failure or performance reason to upgrade. Have we missed something?"

SEND US YOUR COMMENTS, SUGGESTIONS OR SOLUTIONS FOR THIS PROBLEM. We'll include it in the November '13 issue, and post it at Send visuals if you'd like — a sketch is fine. E-mail us at Please include your company, location and title in the response.
