Major Change Update: Microsoft 365 Applications on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012
An important Microsoft update for all Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 users
Grace Brockbank, Marketing Coordinator, Fabric
Microsoft has released a major update regarding Microsoft 365 Applications on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. This will affect any devices still running these systems.
How does this affect me?
If you are running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 and update Microsoft 365 Apps to version 2005 or later, you will experience functionality and stability issues in your Office applications due to innovations that are not compatible with those operating systems.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
If any of your users are running Windows 8, we recommend upgrading to Windows 10 before updating to a version of Microsoft 365 Apps version 2005 or beyond. For devices configured for Office auto-update, you may also choose to temporarily disable automatic updates until you can upgrade Windows.
