Windows 7 Application Compatibility List for IT Professionals


It’s finally here!

We released the Windows 7 Compatibility Center a few weeks ago. This lets you look up one application at a time. You can find that at http://windows.com/compatibility.

Today, we have a downloadable list indicating vendor support. If you want to write some automated matching against your list of application, you can use this – it is an Excel download of all known information from vendors. You can find that at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=890e522e-e39e-4278-aebc-186f81e29173&displaylang=en.

The final step will be to have this information integrated directly into ACT. The target date for this integration is mid-December 2009. We’re getting there! We’re also planning to keep this data updated bi-weekly.

Enjoy!

    @Farooq – at this point, there is no certification in ACT. Our online ACF training has a test, but it’s not a certification test. It is pretty hard, though. 🙂
