Application Virtualization, Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization, and Windows XP Mode, among other technologies with the word "virtual" in the title, are top of mind at the moment and justifiably so. Given these options and even though compatibility between Windows Vista and Windows 7 is very high, there are still quite a few people running Windows XP looking for answers. This session covers all the major compatibility-impacting changes, virtualisation options, and tools to discover, analyse and mitigate your applications for compatibility with Windows 7 and points to tools for "fixing" incompatibilities without having to rewrite your incompatible applications. Learn about hardware compatibility and tools to discover and evaluate whether your current hardware and devices will work with Windows 7. Finally, hear about resources to find out more about compatibility and virtualisation options.
