Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit v4.0 is finally released

Over the last few months I’ve been critical of the time its taken for Microsoft to ship an SP2-aware update to their application compatibility toolkit. Last week, one of the consultants from Microsoft UK e-mailed me to let me know that the Microsoft application compatibility toolkit v4.0 is now available for Windows XP (including SP2) and Windows Server 2003.

The application compatibility toolkit contains tools and documentation to evaluate and mitigate application compatibility issues including the latest versions of the Microsoft Application Analyzer that simplifies application inventory and compatibility reporting, the Internet Explorer Compatibility Evaluator that assists testers in locating compatibility issues with Internet Explorer on Windows XP SP2, and the Compatibility Administrator that provides access to the necessary compatibility fixes to support legacy applications in Windows.
