Is 8.0.1024 Only for Windows 7 and Above?

Recommended Posts

I already read that SAS is no longer going to support Windows XP.  However, I never read that 8.0.1024 did not support Windows XP.  Right now I'm only assuming that it doesn't.  So I haven't even tried to install it on my Windows XP.  However, whenever I download definitions updates, I always get the heads up message that a new version is ready for install.  If I have 6.0.1264 installed and version 8.0.1024 does not support Windows XP, why am I being prompted if I want to proceed with the install of the new version?

Hi Chim,

Where did you hear that SAS 8 does not support WIndows XP?  You should have no issues using SAS 8 on your XP machine.  I can tell you informally that we have no plans to remove support for Windows XP -- as long as it is not problematic for us to continue to do so.  We have great respect for Windows XP and our XP users, but we do realize that the number of active XP installs are shrinking every day.  Given that XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, it is best for your safety and security to transition to a supported OS if at all possible.

Thanks,

Geoff
