Hello - On November 1st 2021, O365 services connectivity on certain older Office versions will end. In the post (here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/endofsupport/microsoft-365-services-connectivity ) it lists out all the versions of Office/Outlook. Though it also says briefly and vaguely Visio and Project are affected.

What versions of Visio/Project are affected? For MSI and click to run versions? Our more recent installs of Visio and Project are baked into the O365 office suite. But we do have older versions (project 2010/13) of these two apps that used MSI based installer.

How are Visio and Project impacted by this change?

    Hi @net1994 ,
    Project and Visio are not included in Office suite, I suggest you refer to these links about Project and Visio lifecycle:

    Project: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/?terms=Project
    Visio: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/?terms=Visio

    Hope the information is helpful.
