Windows 7: Test Your Application on Windows 7 at TechEd 2009

Test Your Application on Windows 7 at TechEd 2009

In this post we will deviate from our normal routine of writing about Windows 7 features, APIs, and code samples, and will instead talk a little about an amazing opportunity to test your application for Windows 7 application compatibility. We will focus on Application Compatibility as part of the Windows 7 Developers' Blog, but, right now we want to let you know about a great offer we have for you.

Are you planning to attend Microsoft TechEd 2009? Well, here is another good reason for you to consider attending: the Windows 7 ‘Bring Your Own Apps’ Lab. This lab will allow you to test your applications for compatibility with Windows 7, and will be offered free of charge. This is an amazing opportunity to test your applications on Windows 7 and work with Microsoft engineers on specific Windows 7 compatibility issues.

You must be asking yourself, “So how exactly does this lab work?

Simple! We are setting up a secure Windows 7 test platform in a private developer lab environment for testing and debugging your applications. Just bring your applications and we will load them on the test platform, and our dedicated consultants will help you investigate any application compatibility issues and offer architectural guidance.

By now you should be saying, “OK, I am in! How do I register?”

Pre-register for the 75-minute lab sessions by emailing with your company name, list of developers, and list of application names and versions you wish to check. You can also register upon arrival at TechEd by signing up at the reception station located in the lab (Room 410). As an added convenience, the lab will also be available on May 10th, the Sunday prior to TechEd 2009, and is open for registration then as well.

This is a great opportunity to test your applications on Windows 7, but there is limited availability, so be sure to register early.

If you are not able to attend TechEd, check out these other resources to help you ensure that your applications are Windows 7 compatible. You can find all the relevant resources in the Windows Application Compatibility page on MSDN. But I want to highlight few key resources:

See you at TechEd
