Firm finds that Vista SP1 has little or no further impact on application compatibility

AppDNA, a developer of application testing software, revealed the results from an extensive test of 100 core enterprise applications for compatibility changes under Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1).

The tests found there is no determinable difference for application compatibility under Vista SP1, with 18 per cent of applications still failing the test and requiring remedial action to run.

AppDNA used its automated application compatibility testing tool, AppTitude to conduct the testing.

Mike Welling, CEO and founder of AppDNA, comments: "Our testing reveals clearly that the release of Vista SP1 has made no significant impact on the issue of application compatibility, over and above the initial release of Windows Vista, whilst no increase is good news it shows that this will continue to be the major area of focus for enterprise customers making the move to this new OS."
