Changes to the NAP user experience in Windows 7

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are now available as public betas. In Windows 7, the NAP client user interface (UI) has been integrated into the Windows Action Center (previously known as the Windows Security Center). For example, Network Access Protection notifications appear in the list of messages when you click the Action Center message in the notification area of the Windows 7 desktop.

The following figure shows an example of how a noncompliant NAP client running Windows 7 displays its status in the Windows Action Center.
