As of April 8, 2014 Microsoft has ceased supporting the Windows XP operating system. No further security patches will be delivered by Microsoft beyond this date.

Your product will continue functioning to published specification on Windows XP. If you use the product in a networked environment or if you send commands from a remote PC to your ENA, we have prepared recommendations on how to operate in a non-WinXP environment.

In case of any further questions, please contact your local Keysight representative, at your earliest convenience.
