Preparing for the ACT

Before configuring and running the ACT, you must verify that you are using supported software, that you meet the minimum hardware requirements, and that you have configured the required permissions and infrastructure. Table 5-2 lists the software required by the ACT. Table 5-3 lists the hardware requirements for using the ACT.

You must provide special system requirements before you can successfully use the Update Compatibility Evaluator (UCE), the SAT, or the Compatibility Administrator. For more information, see the ACT 5.5 documentation. The UCE is not compatible with any 64-bit version of Windows.
