Advanced Notice – Discontinuing Support for Windows XP and Vista
In 2017 we shall be discontinuing support for Windows XP and Windows Vista in PSoC Creator. Microsoft has discontinued support for these Windows platforms and is not maintaining compatibility with them in the .NET framework. PSoC Creator support shall be maintained fully for all public releases in 2016 and early 2017 but the first major feature-based release shall discontinue support entirely.
We constantly seek to improve PSoC Creator by adding new features and improving the user interface. Increasingly, the latter is becoming difficult because older Windows platforms cannot support the new versions of .NET that we need to use in order to keep the interface modern, intuitive and reliable. We are discontinuing support for the older platforms so that we can take advantage of new technologies and continue to improve our product.
Note that this change does NOT apply to PSoC Programmer. There is no plan to discontinue support for Windows Vista or Windows XP in that product.
