User Account Control Compatibility Evaluator (UACCE) Technical Reference

Published: June 11, 2010

Updated: June 11, 2010

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Vista

The User Account Control Compatibility Evaluator (UACCE) enables you to identify potential compatibility issues that are due to permission restrictions enforced by the User Account Control (UAC), formerly known as Limited User Accounts (LUA). Through compatibility logging, UACCE provides information about both potential application permission issues and ways to fix the problems so that you can deploy a new operating system.

You configure the UACCE in the Application Compatibility Manager by defining the evidence collection schedule and deployment method. You can also view your UACCE reports in the Analyze screen of the Application Compatibility Manager.

UACCE is optimized to run in the background of your production environment. It is not a testing tool.
