Windows XP

End of Support

Spring 2019

WellSight Systems officially discontinued support for Windows XP with Version 8.0.0 in 2016. However, because we know that some of our customers continue to have Windows XP on their older computers, our programs have continued to install and run on Windows XP.

We now face the situation where several of the components we use to build our products have discontinued support for Windows XP so you will no longer be able to install and run our programs on Windows XP.

We advise that you purchase newer computers or upgrade Windows to run one of the supported versions. The soon to be released StarLog 8.4.0 will run on Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, as well as Server 2012 and 2016.

Windows Server 2008

End of Support

Spring 2019

WellSight Systems will discontinue official support for Windows Server 2008 (R1 and R2) in the spring of 2019.

Mainstream support from Microsoft ended in January 2015. Windows Server 2012 and 2016 have replaced 2008. 

If your organization has not upgraded beyond Windows Server 2008, please notify WellSight with an estimate of when that is planned to occur.

WellSight Systems will discontinue sales and official support for StarLog Version 6 starting January 1, 2019.

Version 8 is fully backward compatible with Version 6 – that is, it can read older log files from any previous version. So there is no need to continue using Version 6 in order to read existing log files.

Customers with current Version 6 licenses will be able to use them to the end of their license period, but will not be able to renew them after January 1, 2019. Please contact us as soon as possible to make the switch to Version 8.
