In Windows 7 migrations application compatibility is an important issue. That’s where the Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) comes to the rescue. But how does ACT really work? In this session, we dissect the tool to really understand where its strengths are, where its weaknesses are, and why - so you can get a good understanding of the tool and use it to maximum effect. We’ll explore the application compatibility manager and its agents, and the shim infrastructure. You’ll get tips and tricks for remediating applications, helping you to become a true shim ninja. In the end, you’ll be able to build a complete end-to-end scenario and workflow to delight your customers and accelerate your Windows 7 deployments!
