At the end of this year, we will be EOL'ing the legacy Desktop. We would not announce this if we were not firm in that decision. Ultimately, you have to take that information and do what is best for your organization. You can take the chance that it will continue to work for years to come, or you can use the time and weigh your options. 

As for the questions about what EOL actually means, it means we will not be making it available for download or supporting it. I know members that have (and some currently) used legacy Desktop completely disconnected from the internet (and us). My recommendation would be testing that yourself; temporarily disconnect the application from your network and attempting logging in and out.


That said, any members who currently have or had run legacy Desktop in this method, what challenges did you run into?
