Microsoft is ending support for Windows Vista on April 11, 2017. The official support dates are published here:
Windows Vista is certified for desktop clients accessing the E-Business Suite today. Our general policy is that we support certified third-party products as long as the third-party vendor supports them. When the third-party vendor retires a product, we consider that to be an historical certification for EBS.
What can EBS customers expect after April 2017?
After Microsoft desupports Vista in April 2017:
- Oracle Support will continue to assist, where possible, in investigating issues that involve Windows Vista.
- Oracle's ability to assist may be limited due to limited access to PCs running Windows Vista.
- Oracle will continue to provide access to existing EBS patches for Windows Vista.
- Oracle will provide new EBS patches only for issues that can be reproduced on later operating system configurations that Microsoft is actively supporting (e.g. Windows 7, Windows 10)
What should EBS customers do?
Oracle strongly recommends that E-Business Suite customers upgrade their desktops from Windows Vista to the latest certified equivalents. As of today, those are Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.
