You could run it on a Win 7 box and see what the outcome is?

The process would be booting up a Win 7 box, and launching the app.

  • Do you agree that we can not check the complete functionality of the application by manually launching it on a Win 7.. There should be some automated process which will check the Win 7 compatibility in all aspects.

    For Ex: Citrix AppDNA
    • I do agree. Since there wasn't a lot of info on the app in question, and the processes already taken the first step I would do is to run it and to actually make sure it runs. In our environment we have a ton of apps that we still support that were built 10 years ago. The first thing I do when I want to know if it works on Windows 7 is to see if it will launch on Windows 7.

      I do agree with the link you posted. I'm wondering what the cost is? I've used http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7352, but since the majority of our apps our built in some guys basement these types of tools do not work for me.

If you want to do it using AdminStudio, then you need AdminStudio Application Compatibility Pack..


Application compatibility is the number one challenge that enterprises face in migrating to Windows 7 and 8.

See if the program is on the list:


The biggest reason I ran into that XP apps do not work in windows 7 is unsigned drivers and they will not even install.  We have tons of old apps being a college and have had to run only one in compatibility mode.  We are exploring of just using a XP VM for that app that still needs xp.

  • We've been testing http://spoon.net/ for apps like that. It has done the trick so far. It's still new to me though.
  • The powers that be are trying to get us to look into Virtualize desktops, will keep that link, thanks.

What I'm guessing is that Vinodreddy10 does not want to this info for a particular application, He wants to know whether there is an option for migration in AdminStudio?.. He did not mention any application name. So, He has asked this question in generic way... I think..
