During the last academic year we have been rolling out a Windows 7 Managed Desktop to staff across Colleges and Directorates throughout the University. Currently over 1000 staff are enjoying the improved functionality and security as well as access to Office 2013 and a wide range of applications via the self-service provision – Apps on Demand. The Managed desktop is available to all staff – for more info see www.dundee.ac.uk/it/services/desktop and contact the Service Desk to request.
The Managed Desktop replaces the SOE so from January 1 2014, the SOE will no longer be supported. If you are using the SOE then you should have been contacted by a colleague from within your department to arrange migration to the Managed Desktop. If you have not been contacted or have any questions please contact Service Desk.
Please note that Microsoft technical assistance for Windows XP will not be available after April 8 2014. For more info see: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/help/what-does-end-of-support-mean
