Windows 7 Compatibility Centre offers a common platform for selecting the hardware drivers and software updates that are compatible with the new Windows 7 operating system. Compatible products always provide a better experience with our PC. So, you have no need of searching in each and every manufacturer site for knowing the compatibility. Since the site is divided into different categories, you can easily pick up the product you need.
Submitting the products
The product submission form (web form or excel template) is used for submitting the products. The customer should be a device manufacturer or a software product publisher. Also, they should submit complete information about their products. Windows 7 Compatibility Centre authorities will review the information and decide the compatibility. Non-compatible products are rejected as invalid entries. They have an option to update and resubmit the product.
'Compatible with Windows 7' logo indicates whether the product is compatible or not. That means, the product has passed the compatibility test. Also, there are five different icons in the website which indicate the status of the products. The 'Compatible' green icon indicates that the product works with Windows 7. The 'Future compatibility' yellow caution (with clock) icon says that the product will gain compatibility in the future by a specified date. The 'Action recommended' yellow caution icon indicates that the software publisher should provide a solution to ensure that the product works properly. If the product is not working, then it will be showed by a red cross icon with a 'Not compatible' statement. A blue icon with 'No information available' statement indicates that Windows 7 Compatibility Centre is contacting the publisher to ensure the compatibility of its product.
