Viewing the Events Screen in Compatibility Administrator

Updated: May 31, 2012

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Vista

The Events screen enables you to record and to view your activities in the Compatibility Administrator tool, provided that the screen is open while you perform the activities.

The Events screen only records your activities when the screen is open. If you perform an action before opening the Events screen, the action will not appear in the list.

  • On the View menu, click Events.

Compatibility Administrator enables you to copy your compatibility fixes from one database to another, which can become confusing after adding multiple fixes, compatibility modes, and databases. For example, you can copy a fix called MyFix from Database 1 to Database 2. However, if there is already a fix called MyFix in Database 2, Compatibility Administrator renames the fix as MyFix (1) to avoid duplicate names.

If you open the Events screen and then perform the copy operation, you can see a description of the action, along with the time stamp, which enables you to view your fix information without confusion.
