Dear All,

My application software currently working fine with WindowsXP. I wish to upgrade my software to runs on Windows 7. I am using VC++, SQL2005 and DCOM technologies in the application. Please guide me with your valuable suggestions.

What are all the things needs to be noted, when a software gets upgraded from XP to Windows 7?

Thanks in advance!

At first step switch the UAC off and make everything as on a xp machine. This should work. Than turn UAC on and run again.

I guess there will you have some trouble. So make outputs which parts of your code run and where it breaks. Change these parts. Offten it is an rights issue and you need only admin-rights....

Hi Shamina,

As I am also using VC++, SQL Server 2005 for my project, I too installed in my Windows 7 ultimate only.

I hope there will be no issues installing the applications.

So just go ahead and install the softwares.............!!!!

Happy installing

As already suggested, the biggest issues are usually dealing with the new UAC. I wouldn't suggest turning them off at all, just try to install and deal with the issues as they come along. Remember to follow the guidelines set by MS as to where you can read/write to/from, a lot of us where used to being able to easily write to pretty much any part of the system and that's pretty much been cracked down on with UAC.
