Play Inside the Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.6: Finding, Testing, and Fixing Applications on Windows 7
When you approach customers to talk about a Windows 7 migration, inevitably ACT comes up. But how does ACT really work? In this session, we dissect the tool to really understand where its strengths are, where its weaknesses are, and why -- so you can fairly represent the tool to your customers and position it for maximum effectiveness. We explore the application compatibility manager and its agents, the developer and tester tools, and the shim infrastructure. We provide tips and tricks for remediating applications, helping you to become a true shim ninja. You even learn how to remediate applications you intend to deploy using Microsoft App-V 4.6! In the end, you’ll be able to build a complete end-to-end scenario and workflow to delight your customers and accelerate your Windows 7 deployments.
