You’ve built your family entertainment center, complete with numerous activities that will be “fun for the entire family.” You’ve hired cashiers, bought the cash registers. The doors open and in come the crowds. Cash and credit card transactions are moving at a rapid pace.

Important Notice for CenterEdge Users regarding Windows XP

Windows XP Pro

If you are a CenterEdge Advantage client using Windows XP to operate your CenterEdge Advantage installation, this message contains vital information regarding your PCI compliance.

In order to remain PCI compliant, any system which handles sensitive customer data such as credit card numbers must always stay up to date with the latest security patches for their operating systems, letting no more than 30 days pass without a security update. Last Year, Microsoft announced they would stop publishing security and bugfix patches for Windows XP, with the last patch to be released on April 8th, 2014. This means that any system running XP will not receive any security updates after this time, and thus will no longer be PCI compliant as of May 7th.

What this means is that if you are currently running CenterEdge Advantage on a Windows XP operating system, you will need to upgrade your system to a more recent operating system before May 7th in order to retain your PCI compliant status.

CenterEdge strongly recommends upgrading to at least the Professional Edition of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 well before the May 7th deadline.  Please note that CenterEdge does not support Windows Vista.
