Dear valued Customers,

Microsoft® Corporation has announced that they will end their support of the Windows® Vista operating system on April 11, 2017, at which point, security updates, fixes and technical support will no longer be provided by Microsoft.


Accordingly, Sony will no longer be able to assist with any new technical, quality or security issues with our products if they relate to Windows Vista, and we will not be able to provide security updates or implement modifications and validations on our products running on Windows Vista.  As such, please be aware that these products may not work properly or securely if you continue using them with Windows Vista.


Certain products are compatible with newer versions of the Windows operating system.
Please check your model-specific support page for information about Windows operating system compatibility and updates.


Note: Sony cannot support new technical, quality or security issues with our products caused by use with earlier versions of Windows operating system, such as Windows® 95, Windows® 98, Windows® Me, Windows® 2000, Windows® XP, etc., for which Microsoft has already ended support.
