Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) Version 5.6

Published: June 11, 2010

Updated: June 11, 2010

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Vista

The Microsoft® Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) 5.6 enables software developers, independent software vendors (ISVs), and IT professionals who work in a corporate environment to determine, before deployment within the organization, whether their applications are compatible with a new version of the Windows® operating system. ACT also enables such individuals to determine how an update to the new version will affect their applications.

You can use the ACT features to:

  • Verify your application's, device's, and computer's compatibility with a new version of the Windows operating system, including determining your risk assessment.

  • Verify a Windows update's compatibility, including determining your risk assessment.

  • Become involved in the ACT Community, including sharing your application assessment with other ACT users.

  • Test your applications for issues related to User Account Control (UAC) by using the Standard User Analyzer (SUA) tool.

  • Test your Web applications and Web sites for compatibility with new releases and security updates to Internet Explorer®, by using the Internet Explorer Compatibility Test Tool.
