How to prepare for Windows 7 & WES 7 End of Support

Advantech Has 3 Solutions for You
Microsoft has ended support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. Likewise, support for Windows Embedded 7 ended on October 13, 2020. After ending support, technical assistance and updates from Windows Update will cease. This potentially exposes your systems to vicious attacks. Microsoft offers an Extended Security Update (ESU) subscription which includes security updates for three years after the end of support. ESU is offered per-device as an annual purchase.


  • Security updates and bulletins rated “critical” and “important” (typically released monthly or as needed)
  • Support to resolve issues related to ESU deployment and security updates


  • New features, customer-requested non-security updates, design change requests
  • Support for root cause analysis or filing of bugs
  • Advantech Exclusive affaires Installation PackageAdvantech offers an ESU Installation Package for one-click installation and trouble shooting. Just follow the package instructions to take advantage of ESU services.
