INFO: Upgrading Solutions to Office 2010 with Application Compatibility Tools and Guidance

Solutions you develop internally or create for public consumption should function as designed when users upgrade to Office 2010. Here you will begin to learn what you need to know when you migrate existing application code. You can find information about application compatibility tools, programs, and guidance.

Tools and Guidance


Office 2010 Code Compatibility Inspector

The Office Code Compatibility Inspector for VBA and the Office Code Compatibility Inspector for Visual Studio are add-ins that you install with Office 2010 or Visual Studio. The tools scan VBA, VB.NET, and C# code for object model usage that is incompatible with Office 2010.


Office Environment Assessment Tool (OEAT)

This tool helps you determine the kinds of add-ins that are installed on users’computers and the extent to which the add-ins are used. OEAT collects and reports add-in information about Office 2000, Office XP, Office 2003, and the 2007 Office system.


Application Compatibility Assessment and Remediation Guide

The Application Compatibility Assessment and Remediation Guide for Office 2010 describes the overall assessment and remediation process, including planning, testing, piloting, and deployment.
