Windows 7, Server 2008R2 End-of-Life

Microsoft stopped all support for Windows 7 and Windows 2008R2 in January 2020. If you’re still using either we strongly recommend upgrading to something newer. Burli works well with all more recent versions of Windows.

Burli ended its official support for Windows 7 and Server 2008R2 at the same time that Microsoft did. While we don’t expect any immediate issues, we can no longer guarantee than future updates to Burli products will run reliably (or at all) on Windows 7/2008R2.

Burli and Windows 10

We actively recommend using Burli on Windows 10. Our software also runs very well on recent Server editions of Windows including Server 2016 and Server 2019. There is no reason (from our perspective) not to use these operating systems. Both Burli Newsroom and Burli NE are widely deployed worldwide on Windows 10/Server 2016 with no known issues. Windows Server 2012R2 still works well and will be supported until 2023. Some early adopters are using Windows Server 2019 without any reported concerns.

Reboot issues on Windows 7 | March 2018

In March 2018 customers worldwide began reporting that Windows 7 (not just Burli, the entire Operating System) rebooted when Burli Newsroom (and a variety of other software applications) was launched on some PCs. The issue was traced to a Microsoft security patch for Windows 7 (Windows 8.x and 10 were not affected) released on March 13th 2018. Rolling back the update worked around the issue. Microsoft Updates released since seem not to be affected. If you run into this issue, we recommend applying any pending Windows updates. And, of course, retiring Windows 7 which is at the very end of its life.
