Important information for Windows XP and Windows 8 users

Windows XP - Microsoft support ends soon If you are currently using a Windows XP machine please take note that Microsoft’s end of extended support is set for April 8th, 2014. Please Note this also applies to Office2003.
Read the details from Microsoft here. End of support refers to the date when Microsoft no longer provides automatic fixes, updates, or online technical assistance. If your computer is set to automatic Windows updates then you should already have the latest (and last) version installed with Service Pack 3. If not then this is the time to make sure you have the latest available service pack installed. If you are not sure about the status of your operating system then check with your IT consultant.


Windows 8 - update to the latest Abtrac installer If you are installing Abtrac on a Windows 8 machine you will need the very latest Abtrac Install Kit -‘Abtrac Installation Manager’.
Please Note that this also applies to Office2013.We noticed in our trials that Windows 8 has higher permissions and rights restrictions than older Microsoft operating systems. The ‘Abtrac Installation Manager’ replaces “Abtrac Install Step1″ and “Abtrac Install Step2″ files, and works more elegantly with the Windows 8 permissions requirements.
