Only 104 Applications "Certified for Windows Vista" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Microsoft on Wednesday posted a page listing 787 applications that have been tested on Windows Vista, thus far only 104 applications have received certification, most of them being Microsoft's own applications along with companies like Ahead, Cyberlink and Trend Micro to name a few.

    The web site splits the certification into two areas, Certified and "Works with Windows Vista"
    The "Certified for Windows Vista" logo is a compatibility designation for applications and devices that have passed a rigorous testing program on computers that are running Windows Vista. The technical requirements for this designation target four core areas: reliability, security, compatibility with Windows Vista and future operating systems, and installation and removal.

    The "Works with Windows Vista" logo is a compatibility designation that is designed to encourage Windows Vista compatibility for the current generation of Windows-based applications. To receive this designation, software companies test their applications to make sure that the applications meet the program's guidelines.
