Microsoft has issued a draft of the requirements that ISVs will have to meet to be able to use the 'Designed for Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 98' logo on their future applications.
The document, which is posted on Microsoft?s Web site at www.microsoft.com/windows/thirdparty/winlogo/updates.htm#handbook, has been made available for review and comment, even though Windows 98 is not due to ship until the first quarter of 1998 and NT 5.0 is not expected for at least another year.
All of the new requirements are currently in version 3.0 of the Logo Handbook as recommendations, but will become requirements in version 4.0, with many relating to Microsoft?s Zero Administration Windows initiative.
For example, applications will need to support the OnNow standby mode, power management facility and a migration DLL to enable users to upgrade from Windows 95 to NT 5.0 without needing to reinstall their applications.
