Testing Applications for Compatibility with Windows 2000
When you are planning to deploy a new operating system, the magnitude of the effort can make it tempting to defer thinking about the applications that run on it. Critical steps in your deployment project, however, are to identify applications that could cause problems during deployment and resolve the issues before deployment begins.
To ensure that potential application problems are resolved before deployment, your applications testing manager should begin early to develop a plan for testing your Windows-based applications. This chapter leads you through the process of testing your applications for compatibility with Microsoft® Windows® 2000.
