Microsoft Ends Support for Windows Embedded Standard 7

Posted by SpeedLine Support on Sep 4, 2020 8:15:00 AM

Microsoft will be ending support for Windows Embedded Standard 7 on October 13, 2020. Although SpeedLine has never sold computers with this operating system, it is supported for use with SpeedLine software, and we recognize that some of our customers may be running SpeedLine stations that use it.

After October 13, any SpeedLine stations you have with this operating system will still work, and the SpeedLine software will still run on them. But with no new security updates and patches for Windows Embedded Standard 7 vulnerabilities, those stations will be exposed to security threats after Microsoft support ends, and any SpeedLine networks that have computers running this system will fail a PCI vulnerability scan.
