Support for Windows XP/Windows 2003/Windows Vista to be discontinued after 01 October 2017

Windows XP was released almost 16 years ago, on 25th of October, 2001. It is now considered to be an outdated operating system. Microsoft stopped supporting this system 3 years ago, because potential hardware capabilities could no longer be realized on Windows XP due to technical limitations.

Being an outdated system, Windows XP features a number of dangerous vulnerabilities, one of which was recently revealed by the WannaCry encryptor. That is why:

The MetaTrader platforms will no longer support Windows XP, Windows 2003 and Windows Vista after 01 October 2017.

Older versions of MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 will continue to work on these systems, but will not be able to receive updates after 01 October 2017. Also, installers will not run on these operating systems.

The minimum required operating system version for running MetaTrader 4/5 will be Windows 7. However, we strongly recommend using the 64-bit versions of Windows 10.

Which hardware capabilities you cannot realize in MT4/5? Especially in MT4, which you have stopped developing (?)

Systems that were exposed to WannaCry were All windows systems, including Windows 10.

For all of these systems were released patches, including Windows XP.

So it's a bad argumentation.

The good argumentation is - this is the extremely fast and lightweight operating systems. And they are sufficient for all daily tasks.

So I would like to ask you to not stop support.
