Microsoft released a list of compatibility data for 5543 applications last week.
Handy resource to refer to when you don't have the time or connection to web over to the Windows Compatibility Center @ http://www.microsoft...patibility/windows-7
One nice thing about this list: if it says something is compatible, you can rest fairly easy. It's only when it says something isn't that you'll need go online and check for a status update. Having the company URLs listed along with the applications is also a nice bit of info to have.
And since it's in Excel, you can easily perform various data manipulations or repurpose it for use in your own database.
The Windows 7 Application Compatibility List for IT Professionals is a Microsoft Office Excel-based spreadsheet containing software applications which have met Windows 7 Logo Program testing requirements for compatibility with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 (“Compatible – Windows 7 Logo”).Download and info: http://www.microsoft...78-aebc-186f81e29173
Additionally, this list contains applications with a status of “Compatible,” “Free update required,” “Paid update required,” “Future compatibility,” and “Not compatible.” Any of these mean the software publisher has stated the compatibility status but note these products have not met the Windows 7 Logo Program testing requirements.
For the latest collection of compatible applications and hardware devices, please visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center. You can also leave feedback on compatibility and suggest new products to get added in future reports.
