    You could uncomment and it would not effect the application currently. But, it would be better do not change it if you do not have any special requirement. This will help Windows deliver greater compatibility in future versions of Windows as well.

  • Hi DavidThi808,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, what do you mean turn in all operation systems?

    According to your description, if you want to turn on high-res processing, you could use the app.manifest file. If you do not want to turn on high-res processing, you could uncomment the settings. I do not understand uncomment the setting for each version.

    Best Regards,

    Wendy

  • Hi Wendy;

    My question is about this section:

     <compatibility xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:compatibility.v1"> 
          <application> 
            <!--This Id value indicates the application supports Windows Vista functionality -->
              <supportedOS Id="{e2011457-1546-43c5-a5fe-008deee3d3f0}"/> 
            <!--This Id value indicates the application supports Windows 7 functionality-->
              <supportedOS Id="{35138b9a-5d96-4fbd-8e2d-a2440225f93a}"/>
            <!--This Id value indicates the application supports Windows 8 functionality-->
              <supportedOS Id="{4a2f28e3-53b9-4441-ba9c-d69d4a4a6e38}"/>
            <!--This Id value indicates the application supports Windows 8.1 functionality-->
              <supportedOS Id="{1f676c76-80e1-4239-95bb-83d0f6d0da78}"/>
          </application> 
      </compatibility>
    

    If we support all version of Windows, should I uncomment this section to say so? Or is it better to leave it all commented so it will then assume all versions, including future versions?

    thanks - dave
