During the recent Deployment Deep Dive on Windows 7 Community Tour there were a few questions on how best to tackle an application compatibility problem. There are a number of ways you can go about it from new apps, to shims to virtualization. The other day Microsoft and ChangeBASE announced a partnership that will allow you to asses and remediate application compatibility issues with Windows 7 automatically. You can read the announcement here but I urge you to take a look the following:
Microsoft and ChangeBASE are working together to offer you a simple online solution that assesses and automatically remediates applications for Windows 7 compatibility at the press of a button. This solution uses a subset of the full AOK tool from ChangeBASE, a market leader in automated application compatibility and remediation software.
