Resolve Common Application Compatibility Issues tutorials

  • Before installing Windows 8 you can download ACT (Application Compatibility Toolkit) 5.6 to determine whether your applications are compatible with Windows 8.

  • Microsoft ACT (Application Compatibility Toolkit) 5.6 provides a way for you to create an inventory of all installed applications, computers, and devices. Once data is collected, you can analyse compatibility Issues. You can then set categorizing, prioritizing deployment status. After analysing your compatibility issues you can determine the impact of migration on your organization. Accordingly you can use SUA (Standard User Analyzer) tool to test UAC (User Account Control) related issue or create mitigation packages to fix the compatibility issues, when possible.

  • Installing ACT 5.6 toolkit needs SQL Server 2005 onward database components, Dot.Net Framework 3.5 and other prerequisites.

  • Although explaining ACT 5.6 is not within scope of this course, I would strongly recommend you to download it and give a try.


Common Migration methods.

  • Modify configuration of existing application such as issues that require a modification to the application configuration, such as moving files to different folders, modifying registry entries, or changing file or folder permissions.

  • Use ACT tools to detect and create application fixes, also called shims, to address the compatibility issues. You may need to contact the software vendor to resolve additional compatibility issues.

  • Applying updates or service packs to the application. Updates or service packs may help the application to run in the new operating system environment.

  • Upgrade the application to a newer version.

  • If all other methods fail, you can still run the application in an earlier version of Windows by using Hyper-V virtualization tools. Hyper-V support a large number of servers virtualization in a single host environment.

  • Run application in compatibility mode. Right-click the shortcut or .exe file, and then apply one of the following modes from the Compatibility tab. You can then choose compatibility to Windows 95, Windows 98 / Windows ME, Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.

  • If another compatible application is available, consider switching to the compatible application, while doing so consider both the Application cost and Training cost in mind.

  • Apply a program shim. A shim is a small library that transparently intercepts and API and changes the parameters passed, handles the operation itself or redirect the operation elsewhere. Shims can also be used for running programs on different software platforms than they were developed for. You can use the Compatibility Administrator Tool, installed with ACT, to create a new compatibility fix.
