Windows XP support

As you probably already know, Microsoft dropped support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. So what does that mean for MyInfo? (If you use newer version of Windows you can skip this article)

We will continue to support Windows XP

MyInfo will continue to support Windows XP for the foreseeable future. All MyInfo 6 updates will support XP and probably MyInfo 7 will support it too.

Disable internal viewer

However Microsoft’s end of support means that Internet Explorer will be no longer supported too. Because MyInfo uses Internet Explorer for its internal viewer for web pages, this may expose you to vulnerabilities in certain web sites. This is why we strongly recommend that you disable the internal viewer and open links only in your default external browser (which should be different than IE).

You can disable the automatic Internal viewer by doing:

  1. Click Tools > Options > Browser.
  2. Uncheck “Automatically open web pages and supported embedded files”.
  3. Click Save.
