Support for Windows Vista SP1 ends on July 12, 2011

Microsoft has announced that support for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 will end on July 12, 2011. This date is marked in accordance with the updated Service Pack Support policy as a part of Microsoft Support Lifecycle policy.

Once support ends for Windows Vista SP1, users who have not upgraded to a support service pack will not have access to new security updates, non-security hotfixes, or the option to engage Microsoft product development resources.

Windows Vista SP2 includes support for new types of hardware and includes all of the updates that have been released since Windows Vista SP1.

Windows Vista users must upgrade their Service Pack to continue to be eligible for Mainstream Support on Windows Vista.

In the case of the Windows product family, when a new service pack is released, Microsoft will provide 24 months of support for the previous service pack. The General Availability Date of Windows Vista Service Pack 2 was 4/29/2009.

Microsoft recommends that customers migrate to the latest supported service pack or product prior to end of support.
