Here’s a Short Blog with a very Important Message (T-MINUS LESS THAN 6 MONTHS)

November 14, 2013 Leave a comment

Early last year I wrote a blog specifying how MED-V does NOT affect the Windows XP EOL Support issue: http://blogs.technet.com/b/gladiatormsft/archive/2012/07/30/how-med-v-affects-windows-xp-end-of-life-support-policy-it-doesn-t.aspx 

Little did I know how widely pulicized this would be (re: quoted in The Register and others – http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/08/01/windows_xp_medv_no_go/)

Today’s a good reminder for all that we are now within six months. If you are looking to start a Windows XP migration please be advised that if the purpose of migration is to avoid unsupported or expensive custom extended support agreements, then MED-V will not resolve these concerns. Everything in that article is still valid. If you are still on XP, please feel free to comment on what your migration blockers are below. Are you being held back by a legacy LOB app or is it an Internet Explorer 6 issue?

MED-V: Performance Issues when using Internet Explorer 8 and later in a v1 workspace


Due to performance limitations of Virtual PC 2007 and the additional resources required for Internet Explorer version 8 and later to function properly, it is not recommended to use any version greater than Internet Explorer 7 in the MED-V 1.0 Workspace.

Only Windows Internet Explorer 6 SP2 and Windows Internet Explorer 7 are officially supported for the MED-V 1.0 SP1 workspace installation. This is referenced on the following link:

For Version 2 of MED-V, Windows Internet Explorer 6, Windows Internet Explorer 7, Windows Internet Explorer 8, and Windows Internet Explorer 9 are supported for the MED-V 2.0 workspace installation.
