Can the Windows XP operating system be used with the PME software package?

Issue:
Can the Windows XP operating system be used with the PME software package?

Product Line:
Power Monitoring Expert 7.x / 8.x

Environment:
supported operating systems

Resolution:
Microsoft has officially ended support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014.  There will be no more security updates or patches beyond this date.  If any vulnerabilities are discovered with the operating system they will remain unpatched.  We advise against using XP machines as PME servers, even for smaller size systems, for this reason.  XP machines can still be used as engineering or web clients with the PME software, but by doing so the user acknowledges and accepts these risks.
