End of Support for Microsoft Office 2007

Microsoft has announced the end of support for Microsoft Office 2007 on October 10, 2017.  It means that Microsoft will no longer provide the following software support services for this version of Microsoft Office:

  • security updates
  • non-security hotfixes
  • free or paid assisted support options
  • online technical content updates

Running unsupported and unpatched products are vulnerable to security risks.  We would advise users of Office 2007 to upgrade their software to the latest available version, e.g. Office 2016, as soon as possible.

Please visit the following webpage of Microsoft’s announcement on the subject for details:
