July 1 deadline announced for replacing Windows 7 workstations

As previously announced, Microsoft is no longer supporting their outdated Windows 7 operating system. On July 1, 2022, all workstations still using Windows 7 will be blocked from the network.

These workstations have already been cut off from accessing the virtual private network (VPN) as they are no longer supported by our VPN solution.

Get your new Windows 10 device

If you have a VUMC IT managed Windows 7 workstation, VUMC IT is replacing it with a new Windows 10 device. Here is what you need to do next:

1. Determine which operating system your workstation is running by answering these questions.

a. Schedule some time to work with one of our team members and replace your system if your questions indicate that you have a Windows 7 device.

2. If your workstation is not centrally managed (by VUMC IT), contact your Independent Support Provider (ISP) for guidance on completing the upgrade process before July 1, 2022.

3. Email the team at Windows10Upgrade@vumc.org if you have any questions about the initiative.
