You may already know that, as of Jan. 1, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7.
What does this mean for app developers?
Computers running on Windows 7 will be more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. As an app developer, you may have created apps to work with QuickBooks Online or QuickBooks Desktop, which may no longer work properly if the customer has Windows 7.
In addition, at Intuit, the security of our customers’ data is a top priority. To help customers safeguard their personal information, such as their Social Security number and bank account information, we strongly recommend that desktop customers who use Windows 7 upgrade to Windows 10 before installing any product.
