Office 2007 End-of-life
Office 2007 is reaching end of support on October 10, 2017, per Microsoft Lifecycle Policy. As a reminder, after that date there will be no new security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates. Furthermore, as adoption of Office 365 accelerates and cloud usage increases, custom support options for Office products will not be available. This includes the Office Suites as well as Exchange Server; SharePoint Server; Office Communications Server; Lync Server; Skype for Business Server; Project Server and Visio. With the upcoming end of support date approaching for Office 2007, we encourage customers to complete their migration and upgrade plans. We recommend customers to leverage deployment benefits provided by Microsoft and Microsoft Certified Partners including Microsoft FastTrack for cloud migrations, and Software Assurance Deployment and Planning Services for on-premises upgrades.
