What is happening to Windows 7?

Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7.

When is this due to happen?

Windows 7 is due to go end-of-life on January 14th 2020.

Will it continue to operate as normal?

It should continue to operate normally after this date but will no longer receive security updates from Microsoft. While anti-virus programs and restrictive user permissions should reduce the risk of attack, unresolved vulnerabilities in Windows 7 will begin to accumulate after Jan 14 2020.

What does this mean for my Autodesk/ CADSTAR or eCADSTAR software?

We would strongly recommend that computers still running Windows 7 or previous versions of Windows are upgraded to Windows 10 at the earliest convenience.
