Application Readiness Check - Utilizing RayQCAd

I would like to show you how RayQC Ad can be used to provide a real quick overview of your current application portfolio and see whether or not it is compatible to Windows 10.  By the way: This is part of the overall process for Collision and Compatibility Management "DIRROCI" from Raynet. RayQC Advanced is the tool that is used to check Application for OS-Readiness, Collision and Virtualization capability.

We also have a video and some more information online:

Use RayQCAdcmd.exe

We have added a tool called “RayQCAdcmd.exe” that allows to provide automatization for import and testing purposes. Let’s take a look at “RayQCAdcmd.exe –help” :

Import packages to the library


  • RayQCADcmd.exe –import -source "P:\WinScp.msi"

Testing compatibility between packages


  • RayQCADcmd.exe  -test r -source "P:\WinScp.msi" -report C:\Reporting\Result_WinSCP -reportformat HTML –rule "TG101;TG102;TG103;TG104;TG105;TF106;TG107;TG108;TG109;TG110;TG11


Powershell to do the Import

I wrote a really simple PowerShell script to import all .msi from a folder (also includes all .MSI in Subfolders).  Make sure to change the path from Get-ChildItem when you use it:

Run the script:

Run the script in command line interface


Results in RayQC Advanced:
