Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.0 (ACT 5.0)

ACT 5.0 is one of the new deployment tool announced by Microsoft corp. that will help expedite businesses migration to Windows Vista.
ACT 5.0 is a tool that helps businesses reduce the cost and time needed to resolve potential application compatibility issues encountered when moving to Windows Vista. Through a series of compatibility evaluators and tools, ACT 5.0 enables software developers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and IT professionals to determine whether their applications are compatible with Windows Vista and how best to resolve any conflicts, even before Windows Vista is deployed within an organization. ACT 5.0 also includes mechanisms for remediating compatibility issues and tracking compatibility information through an application’s entire life cycle. In addition, the new online ACT community feature provides users with access to regularly-updated assessments and test results from Microsoft and a range of other companies, including the ISVs themselves. ACT 5.0 is available as a free download from ACT 5.0
