XP SP3 Extended Support, but with XP Embedded license. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My product is using the XP SP3 OS but for licensing issues we use an 'Windows XP for Embedded Systems' license.  My question is, since XP SP3 extended support is ending April 2014, will Embedded XP licenses still get security patches for regular XP SP3 OS?  

    This website http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?LN=en-us&p1=3220&x=18&y=11 says Embedded is still supported out to Jan 2016.

    Sorry about another XP SP3 extended support question, but this is an issue I need to be certain on. 

    Thanks

    If you mean getting security updates for Windows XP Professional/Home Edition till January 2016 (instead of April 2014) by using a Windows XP Embedded license - then no you can't. 

    The support lifecycle is valid for a Windows XP Embedded installation only.
