ACE : AdminStudio’s ConflictSolver uses rules known as Application Conflict Evaluators (ACE) to determine potential conflicts between each of your application packages and your OS. AdminStudio comes complete with several predefined ACE rules for checking various application conflicts – including file, registry, and version conflicts – and for following migration best practices. But AdminStudio’s Rules Wizard also gives you the accessibility to easily create your own custom ACE and business rules to identify applications that violate your corporate standards. AdminStudio offers an intuitive, easy-to-use, wizard-driven approach to creating custom ACEs that detect complex conflicts between a package and any MSI table in the complete Application Catalog.

Once created, your custom ACE can be shared and used anytime by other members of your desktop management team, making your collaborative projects even more efficient.
ICE stands for Internal Consistency Evaluation and is performed by a Microsoft tool called MSIVAL2.exe on any MSI package. MSIVAL2 scans the package for consistency errors that may be harmless individually but that cause problems in the context of the whole database. Attempting to install a package that fails validation can corrupt the user's system leading to problems when uninstalling or logging in as a different user. Eliminating ICE errors leads to better package quality and so reduces rollout risk.
