Windows XP Support Ending by December 31, 2017

Post by Jay » Tue Apr 11, 2017 8:24 pm

Attention all Windows XP users.

Radio Toolbox will be ending desktop support for Windows XP in September 2017. The Radio Toolbox Desktop Application may still function on Windows XP after this date but we will no longer make specific updates targeting Windows XP issues and users. Our main concern is the growing divide of current modern tools from Window XP as well as security concerns for the Windows Certificate Store which uses aging encryption technology that could be susceptible to eavesdropping.

We will also no longer guarantee support with the Radio Toolbox API starting December 31, 2017. This date is significant because the Radio Toolbox desktop application may not be able to communicate with the Radio Toolbox API at all and cause communication issues with even older versions of the Radio Toolbox desktop application. We recommend all our users move away from Windows XP for general internet traffic communication use that relies on the Windows Certificate store which includes the Radio Toolbox desktop application as soon as possible.

Hi Jay, This line isn't 100% clear to me. ...."We will also no longer guarantee support with the Radio Toolbox API starting December 31, 2017"... Does this remark is assigned to all API users with other OS systems? Thanks for answering; René

No, this will only apply to those who use Windows XP. If you use anything newer all Radio Toolbox services will continue to function and be supported. We have made this call because we can no longer guarantee the security of the Radio Toolbox for those who use Radio Toolbox from Windows XP.

Sorry for the confusion.
