Installing virtual xp on windows 7 with cut-off date RRS feed

  • Question

  • I own a computer with windows 7 pro and have installed virtual xp. What will happen when you cut off service to xp, and my computer crashes and I need to re-install? Will I be unable to get the updates prior to April 5, 2014 if it crashes after that?

  • Updates for Windows XP with SP3 installed will end on April 8, 2014.  However, those updates will continue to be available after that date, just no new ones.
