I applied the PosReady2009 patches to my Win.XP pc without any problems until April 2019.
How? What are you doing to make that happen?
I looked at the link you provided and it told me nothing.
For Windows XP all you had to do was set a registry key as explained here:https://www.zdnet.com/article/registry-hack-enables-continued-updates-for-windows-xp/
@Minimalist. Thank you for that link. It explains the XP registry hack in detail.
No problem because some of them were compatible w/ XP, but it doesn't mean you're protected from vuln on XP. For 7 user, there's no reason to install patches for PosReady 7 as there are patches for 2008R2. [EDIT] Whoops...so 2008R2 will also be eol.
Just manually search at MUC, download, and install/execute.
Thank you, I already saw it, but I don't understand: it's something to install over Windows 7 ? I have 7 home premium: can POSReady help me after 14 January ?
PosReady 7 is an OS for Point of sale system (e.g. cash register) derived from Win7. As it will be supported till Oct. 2021, it will get security patches and some of them will be compatible w/ Win7.
Thank you !
I have no interest in using W7 POS, I am just interested in why one would.
The XP hack: seems as though Microsoft left the backdoor open and after the thieves got in, they didn't care.
Also, though I have no experience with any OS that runs in a point of sale system, I am assuming it is significantly pared down.
Google has officially stated that they will end browser support for Windows 7, July
However, there are many alternatives. FF has made no official statement to date.
Microsoft to support new Edge browser on Windows 7 (after eol) - watch for windows updates on this
They didn't say they will end support at that date. They said, "We will continue to fully support Chrome on Windows 7 for a minimum of 18 months from Microsoft's End of Life date, until at least July 15, 2021." It can be inferred that support will extend beyond the date given, due to their use of the words "a minimum" and "at least". Perhaps they are being ambiguous on purpose, but what they are not being is precise.
@Page42. You got that right.
It is as though Miracle Max wrote the communique. "It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive.. ".
oh that's for sure
January 14, 2020 is a catalyst for change for the PC user. It is driving much of the discussion about moving forward. Decisions will be made either immediately or over a longer period of time. The end of support for W7 is a major milestone and it has set the tone for 2020.
There are lots of informative threads here on Wilders re: W7 eol. Experience, advise, links, questions, answers - they all have value.
Questions still abound for many who have not yet made a decision on whether to stay with Windows or not. I do not buy into the argument that most people are incapable of dealing with change - some are, but most not. The majority of us are 'watch and see' types - a survival instinct. We are all influenced by others (some fall prey to manipulation) but it pays to be cautious. Security has many faces.
