With this connector update, Administrators will be able to utilize valuable Application Compatibility information right from within the Configuration Manager console.  The ACT Connector provides the following functionality within the Admin console:

  • Inventories installed software applications and creates reports that will assist with determining which applications are Windows compatible.
  • Retrieves device driver compatibility for installed devices and creates reports that will assist with determining which device drivers will need to be upgraded to support the Windows operating system.

  • Hello,

    Does anyone know if there is a way to configure what credentials the ACT connector uses to connect to the database?  We have a disjointed namespace and the account that it uses to connect to the databse just uses the primary suffix.
