A few years back I was the technical owner for SQL Server 2005 readiness in the UK with Independent Software Vendors. One of the things we did at the time was put together a detailed catalogue of UK developed applications that worked great with SQL Server 2005. My marketing buddy at the time was Ian Moulster and I just spotted he is doing something similar for Windows 7. Check out Ians explanation or..

   1:  if (YourCompany.Country == UK && YourApplication.SupportedOS == OS.Win7)
   2:  {
   3:      Email.SendEmail("Win7Directory@Metia.com", 
   4:                      YourCompanyLogo.HighRes, 
   5:                      "Quote on why Windows 7", 
   6:                      "Name of person to associate quote with", 
   7:                      "Title of person", 
   8:                      "Application Name", 
   9:                      "Industry sector", 
  10:                      "URL of product or company");
  11:  }

Technically the application doesn’t yet need to work on Windows 7 but will need to work by October.

If you need help getting your application ready, then a good place to start is https://www.isvappcompat.com/ 

P.S. Yep the “code” above has scope for many improvements. First up it should be written in Ruby :)

Surely it should compile before we 'improve' it. I'm guessing the only (major) language that will compile it is C++. The single '=' compare blows it for C#.

Ooops. Guilty as charged. Spent last year doing VB .NET :-)

Possibly another good advert for TDD (or even just typing into an IDE rather than a blogging program!)

When can we get our hands on Windows 7E so we can test our apps on a version of windows with no IE installed
