Does Work for Desktop work in the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system? Will it continue to be developed and supported on that platform?
- Work for Desktop
- Microsoft Windows 7
Yes, Work for Desktop works in Windows 7.
However, beginning February 12, 2020, 8x8 will no longer continue to engineer or develop the application with Windows 7 in mind. This aligns with Microsoft's own planned End of Support for the Windows 7 OS.
After Februrary 12, 2020, the application will continue to work, and customers can still receive technical support, but bugs specific to Windows 7 will no longer be addressed by 8x8. Future application development will not include testing on this platform, and over time, users (especially those on 32 bit systems) may experience deprecated functionality.
