Alpha Anywhere OS Support Changes Start January 1, 2021

Alpha Anywhere LogoOn New Year's Day, you'll see Alpha Anywhere continue to evolve and remain at the forefront of low-code development.

In order to keep Alpha Anywhere current with new technology, we are ending of support for older versions of Windows and Windows Server. These changes will be phased in over the next year.

Beginning January 1, 2021, Alpha Anywhere will no longer be supported on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 systems. Support for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 will end on July 1, 2021. If you are currently running Alpha Anywhere on these operating systems, we strongly recommend upgrading to Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 or newer.

Windows Server 2016 July 1, 2022 January 11, 2022

Support for Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019 will end approximately 6 months after Microsoft Mainstream Support ends. Alpha Anywhere will continue to be supported on Windows 10 systems that are kept up-to-date. Support for future operating systems will be determined after their release.

These support changes apply to Alpha Anywhere Developer Edition, Alpha Anywhere Application Server for IIS, Alpha Anywhere Classic Application Server, and Alpha Anywhere Community Edition.
