Windows 8 has received a mixed welcome, while some lament over the loss of the start button, others worry about its practicality in a business setting. For the latter, it’s a valid concern, especially for IT administrators tasked with the project of upgrading legacy apps to the latest software. Unfortunately, many have been faced with issues of incompatibility when it comes to running older apps on the new platform.
Microsoft understands IT’s struggle, and has plenty of options for those worried about bringing employees up to date with Windows 8, without rendering their most-used programs useless. The Microsoft Windows Compatibility Center is the first stop for anyone looking to use legacy apps with Windows 8, and if that doesn’t turn up the right solution, next stop is the Windows 8 Application Compatibility Forum.
