Windows software logo certification program deprecated

Microsoft has taken the opportunity for software vendors to have their products certified for Windows. The program has been deprecated. Microsoft recommends that Vendors use the desktop bridge to distribute their software via store.


If software vendors wanted to do something special, they could register with the Sysdev portal and take advantage of the Windows Software Logo Certification Program. If the software passed the certification, the manufacturer was allowed to advertise it with the logo – and buyers had the opportunity to select software according to this certificate to ensure compatibility..

Now the Sysdev portal no longer allows or rejects this Windows software logo certification. Partners who need Microsoft certification and distribution of their Win32 applications are recommended to use the Desktop Bridge to distribute your application through the store.

That’s the message I read from this Tweet, posted by Rafael Rivera. Rivera tried to get further details:
