The Office Compatibility Tools Update 1 released now and delivers important fixes to the Office Compatibility tools improving reliability and performance.
"The update addresses the existing Office Compatibility tools including: Office Migration Planning Manager (OMPM), Office Environment Assessment Tool (OEAT), & Office Code Compatibility Inspector (OCCI)," revealed Brian Shiers.
"Upgrading to the new versions of these tools isn't supported. You must reinstall each tool to use the Update 1 version of the tools. Prior OMPM file scans (xml or cab files) or OEAT environment scans are not compatible with the Update 1 versions. You must execute new scans to use the newer versions of the tools," Shiers stated.
"The tools can help you accomplish the goal of getting Office deployed but you must use them properly. What is the proper use? The important thing to remember is to avoid over discovery which can lead to extended analysis cycles. Ensure you collaborate with your content owners to target the content and apps which hold the greatest value to the business," Shiers added.
