Windows 7 Application Compatibility Labs in the US

In the run-up to any operating system release, we start to see a lot of “world tour fever” and Windows 7 is no different. Windows has a huge partner ecosystem, and we want to make sure that we at least stand a fighting chance of helping you get it done by at least getting a little bit closer to where you are – and that involves collecting a few frequent flier miles.

June looks to be USA month, and I saw this come across my email, so I figured I’d share it. The Developer and Partner Evangelism (DPE) team is holding 4 events in June for ISVs:

June 1 – Mountain View, CA

June 8 – Reston, VA

June 15 – Alpharetta, GA

June 22 – Waltham, MA

If you’re interested in an opportunity to work with some of our engineers to test your application on Windows 7 (and get some help debugging it if it doesn’t work), you can register here:

I’m not doing any of these myself, though I’ve done these events in Taipei and Tokyo and they’ve always been very enlightening and can start a great dialog. I hope some of you are able to attend!

    Nice opportunity for US people.

    Chris, we’re having an issue deploying DCP’s in a customer environment.  Basically, the DCP installs, the service starts up, then we get a ‘fatal error’ from the Inventory Collector and the DCP self-uninstalls.  Any help would be great (we installed it with admin privileges to an XP SP3 box w/IC, UACCE, and WCE in the DCP).  Is this related to the share permissions where the logs get written?

    Chris, we found the culprit on the DCP error.  Beyond Trust’s Privilege Manager.  The latest version works.  Due to tight timeframe for AppCompat POC, we’re deploying to workstations w/o this software (it won’t be used going forward on Win7).

    Sorry for the comments unrelated to the original post (was a little desparate for help yesterday).  =)
