Office 2019 Won't Support Older Versions of Windows

If Windows 7 and 8.1 users are forced to use Office on the web, then they may question why they've stuck with Office at all, and any alternatives out there are likely to spend the next few months emphasising to anyone who will listen that they are completely compatible and that transition and roll out would be a doddle. Windows has gone farther than versions older than Windows 10 could catch up. This is a change from the previous five years of extended support.

StatCounter claims that Windows 10 took a 42.78 per cent market share in January, marginally ahead of Windows 7 with 41.86 per cent. However, without that bill, which slashed rates for US firms' overseas cash holdings from 35 percent to 15.5 percent, Microsoft would have had to pay over $28 billion more to repatriate those funds.

It hasn't been the smoothest road, but after its launch in the winter of 2015, Windows 10 has finally surpassed the eight-year old Windows 7 as Microsoft's most popular operating system. For instance, Windows 10 can work with the fingerprint sensor using Windows Hello.

A post on the Windows blog outlines changes to servicing and support of Windows and Office. That time the company did not provide much details about the new licensed version of Office 2019. They can defer major updates by up to 365 days using Windows Update for Business, but the 18-month countdown until each Windows 10 feature update reaches the end of support keeps ticking away.

Two years ago, Microsoft criticized cleaner and optimizer programs for not providing users with more detailed information about the system errors and security problems they claimed to address.

Cumulative update KB4077735 is not rolled out via Windows Update, and you can only download it manually from Microsoft's Update Catalog page. This means that Office 2019's extended support will end on 14th October 2025.

In yesterday's support article update, Microsoft said the beta apps for the next version of Office will arrive in the second quarter of this year, with the final version due in the second half of 2018. Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only, but Microsoft will not be offering MSI deployment for Office 2019 clients, only doing so for Office Server products. As Redmond's explained, "In the past, perpetual versions of Office were released under the Microsoft Fixed Lifecycle Policy, with a term of 5 years of standard support and 5 years of extended support". Nor will unsupported Windows 10 semi-annual releases.
