Windows 7 Test Case: Perform version checking properly at runtime: FAIL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I need help on fixing failed test cases for Windows 7 64-bit compatibility.  Here's a quick background:

    Developed under Visual FoxPro 9
    Uses 3rd Party components (e.g. InstallShield5, Package For The Web 2.01 -- which are really old apps)

    Test case:  Perform version checking properly at runtime: FAIL
    ERROR:  Application failed to run under a higher Windows version
    IMPACT IF NOT FIXED:  Customers are artificially blocked from running their applications when there are not technical limitations
    HOW TO FIX:  Application installations must not perform version checks for equality...

    I do get a pass on the "Test case: Proper OS version checking"... However, I am not sure how to fix the above error (and this is the only FAIL that I have).  When I run the App Verifier (with basic and compatibility checking) on both the application installer and the actual running application, it gives me no error.  BTW, when testing on Windows 7 32-bit, this test case is actually a "PASS".  Please advise.

    Thanks very much.
