The Interoperability solution enables you to assess the MSI applications to be included in the same image. Conflicts can occur between applications that install the same component (or different versions of the same component) when those applications are upgraded, uninstalled or repaired using the Windows installer. These problems arise because the components have different component IDs within the MSI package. This solution is suitable for testing desktop applications that are installed using a Windows installer (MSI) package only.
The Interoperability solution does not test for potential conflicts caused by installing applications, because in most cases the Windows installer automatically prevents these issues from occurring.
You should run the Interoperability solution after:
Be sure to re-analyze all of the applications so you can see all possible conflicts. If you analyze only the new application, the report views show potential conflicts that the new application has with the other applications. However, they will not show potential conflicts that the existing applications have with the new application unless you re-analyze the entire portfolio.
The Interoperability solution produces the same report views that are provided for standard AppDNA reports.
The solution wizard opens.
To view the reports at any time: In the AppDNA side bar, click Solutions and then click the name of the solution.
