Publishing a windows app RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to creating Windows Applications. I have created a Windows App using Visual Studio 2008 and published it. It works fine on most pc's, but I need it to work on Windows 7. What settings do I need to adjust to make this happen. I am running Vista.

  • It should work fine on Windows 7, as is.  There is nothing special required to make an application developed for Windows Vista work on Windows 7.

    If you want your application to take advantage of Windows 7 specific features, you'll need to modify it for that.  Most of the W7 features are available via the Windows API Code Pack.  (This is completely optional, though - your Vista program should work unchanged on W7).
