Windows 7: Microsoft App Compat Toolkit 5.6-Compatibility Manager Issue

08 May 2012   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64
Good thought - Thanks !!

Writhziden - That's an interesting thought as the app that I'm trying to get to work is one of our older applications without a "robust" network installation shall we say .... Hmmmmmm

Yep, that would fail to work in Windows 7 altogether. I've reached out to the vendor about getting an updated version and when they respond, I'll ask them specifically about our current version to see if it's 16-bit. I would be a bit surprised, but it wouldn't be the first time ... Thanks for the feedback !!

Hold the fort - I think we have a winner !! I did a quick Google search and found that 16-bit apps in WinXP don't have a Version tab. Soooo, I got on my WinXP PC and checked the executable and, sure enough, it doesn't have a Version tab. I pulled up Office 2007's Winword.exe just to have a comparison and it does have a Version tab. Wow, 16-bit "network" app ... Who'd a thunk it ?? Guess we'll have to get an update from the vendor. It's just so nice to understand why I kept getting errors from the Compat Admin 32-bit and 64-bit software !! Nice find, man !!!
