Assessing Managed Applications on Windows 2000
Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Vista
The Windows® Compatibility Evaluator (WCE) enables you to identify issues that relate to the following:
Graphical Identification and Authentication (GINA) DLLs
Services running in Session 0 in a production environment
Application components deprecated in the newer version of the operating system
Evaluating Windows 2000 Managed Applications
You cannot evaluate managed applications on computers running the Microsoft® Windows 2000 operating system. The deprecated component portion of the WCE uses a technology that cannot be enabled for managed applications running on Windows 2000.
How Can I Work Around This Problem?
If you require the evaluation of managed applications, your computers must run Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or newer versions of the operating system.
The WCE can detect issues for unmanaged applications on Windows 2000.
