Microsoft Project Product LifeCycle
By: Collin Quiring
It would be unrealistic for Microsoft to support every product it ever created in perpetuity. Therefore, they have a “support end” and often an “extended support end” where they officially will no longer help you or support a product. For the older products like Microsoft Project 98, 2000, 2002, 2003 and the Microsoft Project Server versions (if applicable) of those products no longer have any official support.
It should also be clarified that there is a difference based on Service Pack level. In other words, Microsoft Project 2010 has a product lifecycle and Service Pack 1 has its own lifecycle and Service Pack 2 has its own lifecycle. The following is a quick overview, as seen on the Microsoft site, of the Life cycle for the remaining 2007, 2010 and 2013 versions.
