Selecting Your Assessment Rating

Published: June 11, 2010

Updated: June 11, 2010

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Vista

You can assign an assessment rating to each of your applications, to your application installation packages, and to your Web sites, based on whether they run successfully on a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. You base an assessment rating, which should apply to your entire organization, on your own testing results and organizational requirements. You can also filter your application, application installation packages, and Web site data according to the assessment.

Your assessment choices include:

  • Works. During your organization's testing phase, the application, application installation package, or Web site did not experience any issues.

  • Works with minor issues or has solutions. During your organization's testing phase, the application, application installation package, or Web site did not experience a Severity 1 or Severity 2 issue.

  • Does not work. During your organization's testing phase, the application, application installation package, or Web site experienced a Severity 1 or Severity 2 issue.

  • No data. Neither your organization, Microsoft Corporation, nor the vendor of the application, application installation package, or Web site has provided any data.

    noteNote
    A Severity 1 issue occurs if the application stops responding or experiences data loss. A Severity 2 issue occurs if the application experiences a major functionality loss, for example, if it no longer starts. A Severity 3 issue occurs if minor functionality loss takes place, for example, if typographical or cosmetic errors appear.

Selecting Your Assessment

You can select your organization's assessment for any application, application installation package, or a Web site, from both the report screen and the associated report details dialog box.

noteNote
For this topic, we are going to use the <Operating_System> - Application Report screen and the <Application_Name> dialog box; however, the process is the same for application updates and Web sites.

To select the application assessment on the <Operating_System> - Application Report screen

  1. On the <Operating_System> - Application Report screen, click the application name for which you want to add an assessment.

  2. On the Actions menu, click Set Assessment.

    The Set Assessment dialog box appears.

  3. Choose your assessment rating, one for if the application works on a 32-bit operating system, and one for if the application works on a 64-bit operating system, if required, and then click OK.

    noteNote
    If your organization does not use the 32-bit operating system, or the 64-bit operating system, you can hide that assessment option in the Customize Report Views dialog box. If you hide the option, the associated assessment column no longer appears in the Set Assessment dialog box.

To select the application assessment in the <Application_Name> dialog box

  1. In the <Operating_System> - Application Report screen, double-click the application name to add an assessment to.

    The <Application_Name> dialog box appears.

  2. On the Actions menu, click Set Assessment.

    The Set Assessment dialog box appears.

  3. Click your assessment rating, one for if the application works on a 32-bit operating system, and one for if the application works on a 64-bit operating system, and then click OK.

    noteNote
    If your organization does not use the 32-bit operating system or the 64-bit operating system, you can hide that assessment option in the Customize Report Views dialog box. If you hide the option, the associated assessment column will no longer appear in the Set Assessment dialog box.

  4. Click OK to close the Set Assessment dialog box, and then click Close to close the <Application_Name> dialog box.

Filtering By Assessment Rating

You can filter your application, application installation package, or Web site data by your assessment rating, by using the associated report screen.

To filter based on assessment rating

  1. On the <Operating_System> - Application Report screen, click Toggle Filter.

    The Query Builder appears with a blank row.

  2. Enter your filter criteria, pressing the TAB key to add additional clauses.

    noteNote
    To delete a clause, right-click the row, and then click Delete Clause.

  3. The following example shows a query filters for all applications with an assessment of Works or Works with minor issues or has solutions.
