Windows 7 end of support

Security advisory: Windows 7 users - upgrade your systems as soon as possible!

Windows 7 will reach its end of life on January 14, 2020

This means that, if your system is still running this OS after this date, it will become vulnerable to security risks and viruses because you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates, from Microsoft.

Surprisingly, as January 14 draws ever closer, our server logs suggest that a number of exocad users are still using Windows 7 on machines connected to the internet. As of next week, this can become very problematic - so please take action now.

Processing healthcare information (such as patient names, photos, etc) on insecure computers connected to the internet is unacceptable. If you are still running exocad software on Windows 7, please contact your reseller to upgrade your system and exocad installation. Your reseller can also help transfer existing case data to a new installation. exocad products are backward compatible, so there is no need to worry about data loss when upgrading - typically, it's as easy as simply copying the CAD-Data folder to the new installation!
