Windows XP reached its end of life last April 8, 2014. Microsoft has ended support for Windows XP and will no longer be issuing security updates nor technical support. Microsoft suggests that partners and customers migrate to a current supported operating system to protect computers from malicious attacks.
IBM Endpoint Manager, in turn, will no longer provide security and non-security content and support for Windows XP. However, users of existing Windows XP content can still go through the standard IBM support channels to raise concerns and for troubleshooting support. Customers who signed contracts with Microsoft for extended support for Windows XP are suggested to get in touch with your IBM account representative to get future support for IBM Endpoint Manager for Windows XP patching. For more information about the Fixlet Support offering and contacting IBM about the offerings, see the links in the Other References section.
