The XPocalpyse is near. Are you ready?

March 7, 2014 General Mark

It’s time to replace any of the remaining Windows XP PCs you have in your stores.  Here’s why:

  1. You can get a great deal on new PCs right now.  Contact our Ascend Sales Rep, Pat Gronemus, at sales@ascendrms.com for a quote.
  2. Support Ends on April 8th.  Microsoft won’t support XP after this date.  They won’t be issuing updates of any kind.  Attacks are expected to follow soon after April 8th.  Click here for more details from Microsoft’s Security Blog.
  3. XP PCs Won’t Be Able to Upgrade to Ascend Version 2.10.  For your sake, we need to keep up with the latest programming technologies.  The latest technologies won’t run on XP.  You can upgrade to Version 2.9 this month.  You won’t be able to upgrade these PCs to Version 2.10 in June or any version after that.

Not sure if your PC is running Windows XP?  Go to http://amirunningxp.com to find out.

Attention Windows 7 and 8 Users:  Make sure your computers are current with the latest Windows service packs and updates. If they’re not, you’ll need to get up to date before you can upgrade to Version 2.10.

Version 2.9 is Coming Soon!

Ascend Version 2.9 is in early release.  Over 100 locations have already upgraded and are enjoying the new features.  It will be available for everyone on March 18th.
