INTRODUCTION

The Windows Application Compatibility Update is a software update that improves the compatibility experience in the following Windows operating systems:

  • Windows Vista

  • Windows Server 2008

  • Windows 7

  • Windows Server 2008 R2

Microsoft regularly releases application compatibility updates for these Windows operating systems. This update package is available through Dynamic Update during the installation of these Windows operating systems.



Note If the computer is connected to the Internet when you upgrade the operating system, Dynamic Update prompts you to download critical content. You have the option to skip Dynamic Update during setup.

More Information

The kinds of problems that are resolved by application compatibility updates


When you try to install and run certain legacy games or applications in Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2), in Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2), in Windows 7, and in Windows Server 2008 R2, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • The game, the application, or the firmware is installed incorrectly.

  • The game, the application, or the firmware causes system instability.

  • The primary functions of the game, of the application, or of the firmware do not work correctly.

Applications that experience a change in behavior after you install this update


The following table lists the applications that were added to the cumulative update package. This table also describes the behavior of these applications after you install the update.

Application compatibility updates trigger several changes in Windows Vista SP2, in Windows Server 2008 SP2, in Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2. The following are the three most common:

  • Hard block

    The update puts a hard block on the application. A hard block prevents an application that is incompatible with Windows 7 and with Windows Server 2008 from running on the system.

    Note Microsoft enables Windows to put a hard block on a non-Microsoft application only if the manufacturer of the application gives its consent.

  • Soft block

    The update puts a soft block on the application. A soft block notifies you when an application that is incompatible with Windows 7 starts to run.

  • Update

    The update improves the application’s functionality in Windows Vista SP2, in Windows Server 2008 SP2, in Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2.
