Viewing the Events Screen

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Vista

The Events screen enables you to record and to view your activities in the Compatibility Administrator, provided the screen is open while you perform the activities.


The Events screen only records your activities when the screen is open. If you perform an action before opening the Events screen, the action will not appear in the list.

To open the Events screen

  • On the View menu, click Events.

    The Events screen appears.

Handling Multiple Copies of Compatibility Fixes

The Compatibility Administrator enables you to copy your compatibility fixes from one database to another, which can become confusing after adding multiple fixes, compatibility modes, and databases. For example, you can copy a fix called MyFix from Database 1 to Database 2; however, if there is already a fix called MyFix in Database 2; the Compatibility Administrator renames the fix as MyFix (1) to avoid duplicate names.

If you opened the Events screen and then performed the copy operation, you can see a description of the action, along with the time stamp, which enables you to view your fix information without confusion.
