New Releases from Microsoft - What You Need to Know

Important Information regarding Windows XP SP3

Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) will be released to the public on April 29. At this time, University IT recommends that you wait to install this update until your Desktop Liaison or other IT providers can ensure other applications won't be impacted. University IT will test and release information regarding the compatibility with other University systems.

Microsoft has released 3 new versions of their most popular products: Windows Vista, Microsoft Office 2007, and Internet Explorer 7.0. As with any major new release, it is recommended that you wait to purchase and install these in order to ensure your productivity. University IT providers are working together to test windows-based and browser-based applications to determine compatibility with these new products.

Results and final recommendations will be shared with the University community when all testing has been completed.
