      Hi Julie,

      So while Microsoft is no longer providing support patches for Windows XP to the general public there may very well still be organisations (there are lots in fact) who will continue to pay Microsoft for extended support for Windows XP - I heard a statistic recently that there are 500 million devices still running XP 😀

      I should be pointed out here that SAP will continue to support SAP GUI on windows XP in a special mode called "Post-mortem QA" until the end of 2014. More info can be found here: 

      I don't really know what "post-mortem QA" actually means (sounds horrible) or if this also applies to NWBC perhaps you do?
