Microsoft released Windows XP in 2001—almost 13 years ago—and stopped selling it in June 2008—almost 6 years ago. The time has now come for ADP AdvancedMD to say goodbye to Windows XP and Vista, due to the “end of life” status. Running these versions puts you, our customers, at significant risk of well-known, frequently-exploited security vulnerabilities. Microsoft is no longer releasing updates to fix these known issues and security risks & is considering Windows XP and Vista in an “end of life” status. Because of these risks, ADP AdvancedMD will no longer allow access to our PM or EHR applications from any PC using Windows XP and Vista. This will be effective as of November 11th 2014.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I know if I’m using Windows XP and/or Vista?
Microsoft offers this site to determine which operating system you are using.
What operating system should I upgrade to?
We currently support Windows 7, 8 & 8.1. To avoid having to upgrade again in the near future it is recommended that you upgrade to windows 8.1, or as high as your computer will allow.
Do I need to buy a new computer?
Every computer is unique, so this will need to be determined on an individual basis. Check our System Requirements to see if your computer meets our minimum system requirements. You should also look at Microsoft’s System Requirements.
My PC needs to be replaced, does ADP AdvancedMD sell or lease computers?
ADP AdvancedMD does not sell or lease computers or printers.
What type or brand of PC should I buy?
Due to the hundreds of brands, types, and configurations available, it’s impossible for ADP AdvancedMD to recommend a specific PC. Please see our System Requirements to help guide your decision. If you have further questions, please contact your local IT professional.
My PC needs to be replaced, is my data safe?
Because our applications are cloud-based, all information entered in to our PM or EHR application is safe and secure. Depending on your situation and work flow, you could also have some ADP AdvancedMD data on your PC that may need to be backed-up. Consult your local IT professional as needed.
