A: Service Packs implement additional features and fixes that we believe improve upon the original release.If you do not wish to update to the latest Service Pack release, then you are free to continue using the older version with whatever limitations come with that version.without waiting for a group of fixes or improvements) but these hotfixes will always be only for the latest version.Please remember that “not-supported” does not mean the product is “unusable” or "broken", but rather it means that we do not test against that build nor release updates for it.The following end-of-support dates are formally acknowledged, and as of May 2015, 3 months advance notice will be provided prior to any changes to support.A: We will do nothing specific to prevent the products from operating.
It may be possible to purchase such a product from a third party through a bargain-bin outlet or similar, however we can not offer support for these products.
A: Technically once we have released a Service Pack update, the product has moved on from where it once was and we can no longer "fully support" the older version. we will not release an update solely for the older version, only further updates to the latest version.
We will support all owners of the product and we will do nothing specific to prevent an non-updated version from operating normally, within reason.
If there are problems identified with older versions that are resolved by upgrading, then the obvious solution is to upgrade.
A: Access granted to you by the unsupported product may be terminated.
