Windows 7: Make Your Apps Windows 7 Compatible with AOK4SMB

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Make Your Apps Windows 7 Compatible with AOK4SMB

Windows 7 has been a tremendous success thus far--both as a standalone or upgrade operating system, as well as in driving PC sales. However, the fact remains that there are tens of thousands of small and medium businesses that are shackled to Windows XP due to custom applications that are not compatible with the newest Windows OS.

Microsoft is aware of this hurdle, and it has partnered with UK-based ChangeBASE to launch a new service called AOK for Small and Midsize Businesses--or AOK4SMB for short. With AOK4SMB, SMB customers can validate that custom applications will work with Windows 7, or have them automatically modified to be compatible with Windows 7.

The service uses a subset of the AOK tool developed by ChangeBASE--a leader in automated application compatibility and remediation software. Simply go to the AOK4SMB site, register an e-mail address, complete a brief submission form, and upload your existing MSI file for analysis.

or AOK4SMB for short
That is short? I'd say dyslexic...

Good idea if it works well. It will certainly help the adoption rate.
