Notice for Landonline customers using Microsoft Vista and XP

As you may be aware, Microsoft intends to withdraw extended support for Vista on 11 April 2017, and withdrew extended support for Microsoft XP in April 2014.

While we try to warn users if we become aware that any changes to Landonline are likely to block XP or Vista, we will no longer be testing for XP or Vista compatibility, so there is risk that your access could be blocked if you continue to use them.

If you are still using Microsoft Vista or XP, we strongly encourage you to upgrade to a later operating system.

To help, we provide guidance on the operating systems recommended for use with Landonline (see below). Landonline technical support is offered to customers using these operating systems.
