Hello!

Every once in a while we receive Lifecycle questions in regards to different versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP.  This should help to answer some of those questions.

You will see me make reference to Mainstream Support and Extended Support.  Here is a chart that outlines the differences between Mainstream Support and Extended Support.

 

Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0:

Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 is already in its' extended support lifecycle.  This will be ending on 10/10/2017.


Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010:

Mainstream Support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 will end on 10/13/2015 which means that at that point in time, you will no longer receive tax and year end updates.  Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 will then move into Extended Support until 10/13/2020.

 

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013:

Mainstream Support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 will end on 4/10/2018 which means that at that point in time, you will no longer receive tax and year end updates.  Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 will then move into Extended Support until 4/11/2023.

 

Extended support for Microsoft Dynamics GP is included in the customers and partners standard support plans.  Here is a link that provided more information as well on the Microsoft Dynamics GP Product Lifecycle:
