NI will no longer be able to sell PXI or VXI embedded controllers with Windows XP after December 31, 2016. This is because Microsoft has stated Windows XP cannot be distributed or installed by Embedded OEMs after December 31, 2016. You are receiving this letter because you have purchased one or more of these products in the past.
At NI, we are committed to our customers’ success. Therefore, we encourage you to review our current embedded controller offering for options with a newer Windows OS. If you do not plan to transition to a replacement offering with a newer Windows OS, we recommend you purchase all future-required PXI and VXI embedded controllers with Windows XP in this timeframe.
National Instruments will continue to offer repair services for your PXI or VXI embedded controllers throughout their hardware life cycles. After that time, NI will recommend newer controllers with an updated Windows OS. Please contact your local NI field sales representative for additional questions.
