Office 2010 application compatibility tools

Administrators can use the following tools for Office 2010 to evaluate application compatibility issues:

·         Office 2010 Office Environment Assessment Tool (OEAT) helps you determine the kinds of add-ins that are installed on users’ computers and the extent to which the add-ins are used in Office 2000, Office XP, Office 2003, and 2007 Office system installations. For more information, see the Office Environment Assessment Tool (OEAT) quick start guide for Office 2010 and Office Environment Assessment Tool (OEAT) user's guide for Office 2010 in the Office 2010 Beta Resource Kit technical library.


·         Office 2010 Code Compatibility Inspector can be used in Microsoft Excel 2010, Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, Microsoft Word 2010, and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 to troubleshoot and resolve issues with your Microsoft Visual Basic for Application (VBA) Macros and add-ins. For more information, see the Microsoft Office Code Compatibility Inspector user's guide in the technical library.

To learn about the overall assessment and remediation process, see the Application compatibility assessment and remediation guide for Office 2010.

The Office Migration Planning Manager (OMPM) for the 2007 Office system can also be used to scan for conversion issues that are common to both the 2007 Microsoft Office system and Office 2010. See Introduction to Office Migration Planning Manager (OMPM) for more information. A new version of OMPM for Office 2010 will be available shortly after the product releases.

    Can anyone tell me where to download OMPM for Office 2010?  All technet links appear to be to the 2007 version.  I am looking for the new functionality such as macro scanning and x64 migration scanning.

  2. The OMPM for 2010 was released in early August and is available at…/details.aspx.
