App-DNA introduced version 4 of AppTitude, an application compatibility testing solution that helps organizations learn where is the best place to run an application and why.
AppTitude assists organizations by eliminating much of the manual testing involved in application assessments and OS migrations, such as Windows 7, and gaining faster and better testing and conversion of applications to virtualization formats.
AppTitude 4.0 includes enhancements to several existing features plus newly-added functionality, including:
- A new Windows 7 Report for AppTitude’s Desktop Compatibility Manager module
- Extension of AppTitude’s Production Manager to now support VMWare images
- Integration of AppTitude with the Windows PCA internal database that ships with Windows 7 and Windows Vista for improved reporting accuracy. AppTitude 4.0 recognizes the three PCA states within the OS: “automatic shim,” in which the OS automatically configures the application to run; “soft block,” in which the OS warns that the application may have minor problems but allows it to run; and “hard block,” in which the OS prevents the application from running under it at all
- Newly-improved manifestations and remediations across all reports provide better documentation and detail on algorithms
- New extended attribute import for .NET Framework-based applications provides the ability to determine .NET Framework dependencies in much greater detail. Now .NET Framework-based applications receive the same low-level analysis in AppTitude reports as Win32 apps. This improves overall accuracy and supports the assessment of a wider range of applications.
