Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT)
If you plan to capture application compatibility information as part of your Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP upgrade planning, you have to set up ACT.
The Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) is a lifecycle management tool that helps identify and manage your overall application portfolio, reducing the cost and time involved in resolving application compatibility issues, and quickly deploy Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP, and Windows upgrades.
