WorldShip to End Compatibility with Unsupported Versions of Windows®

Data security is very important to UPS, and we know it is important to your company too. Microsoft® no longer supports versions of its Windows operating system older than Windows 7.  Computers running those unsupported versions might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses*.  Therefore, after August 31, 2018 UPS will no longer accept WorldShip data transmissions from computers running operating systems older than Windows 7.

We recommend you check all of your computers on which WorldShip is installed and ensure they are running Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10.  If not, an upgrade to your operating system will be necessary.  Any WorldShip installation on a computer running an older version of Windows (XP, Vista, etc.) will become unable to produce valid UPS shipping labels after August 31, 2018.

WorldShip Backup and Install Process

If you are upgrading your operating system or are moving your WorldShip installation to a new computer, we recommend you install the latest version of WorldShip. In addition to performance and security benefits, WorldShip 2018 provides access to all the latest UPS products and services. These instructions explain how to back up your data and complete the installation:
