Windows XP End of Support from April 1st, 2020

 

Microsoft officially ended Windows XP support on April 8, 2014, and alas, it is time for Faronics to officially drop support for XP.

 

To ensure Deep Freeze Cloud continues to follow industry-leading security practices, our services will not install on XP computers starting April 1st, 2020. All existing deployments on XP computers will no longer be able to communicate to our web server and cease to receive any updates.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Contact Technical Support at support@faronics.com if you need assistance.

The caching letter will be hidden in Windows Explorer.
