In our contemporary world, today’s technology becomes outdated and eventually obsolete. Betamax is replaced by VHS, which is replaced by DVDs, then Blu-Ray, then streaming, etc. In the PC world, we’ve gone from Windows 98 to XP, 7, Vista, 8, 8.1, and now Windows 11! Along the path of progress, related devices and software must be updated, upgraded, or discarded.
Sign making software is no exception. As the digital infrastructure gets upgraded support for old software is no longer feasible. It’s time to move on. Now’s the time to update your old LXi software and keep your business moving forward. Every day, more and more users are enjoying the convenience and online features of Vinyl Express LXi 19.
LXI &.5 & 8.5: End of Life; No more support
Due to a loss of manufacturer support for the soft key licenses issued during this era, LXi 8.5 is at an “end of life” phase. Soft key licenses (those that run without the use of a dongle or hard key) are failing due to unsupported operating systems for which they were designed. Support for LXI 8.5 ended several years ago. If yours is still running, it’s been on life support until now. Once it stops running, Product Support cannot resuscitate it.
LXi 10, 10.5: End of Life; No more support
LXi 10 and LXI 10.5 licenses were introduced in 2010 and are compatible with Windows XP (3), Vista, and Windows 7. These operating systems are no longer supported by Microsoft, and the original licenses are no longer active on the server. This means we are unable to continue to provide technical support for LXI 10 and 10.5 customers. Issues that render the software inoperable will have to be remedied with the purchase of a comparable new LXI 19 license.
LXI Cloud: End of Life, No more support
LXi Cloud was introduced in 2013 and is compatible with Windows XP (3), Vista, and Windows 7, & 8. These operating systems are no longer supported by Microsoft, and the software is not compatible with 64-bit operating systems like Windows 10 and 11. We are unable to continue to provide technical support for LXI Cloud. Issues that render the software inoperable will have to be remedied with the purchase of a comparable new LXI 19 license.
LXi 12: Not compatible with Windows 11
Windows 10 was introduced in 2015, 7 years ago. LXi 12 was introduced at roughly the same time. LXi 12 is not compatible with Windows 11. Windows 11 was introduced in 2022. To continue using LXi you will have to upgrade to LXi 19.
