Hello all,

Sorry I'm new here and was unable to find an answer to my questions using the search feature.

Because Microsoft requires several MCPs to satisfy their non-ISV competancies, I need to take the ISV route to get Certified Partner status.

If I was to go for the ISV Competancy, what kind of application are they expecting me to develop I read on the lionbridge site that games and office productivity applications were not allowed for "Certified for" testing. What would I develop then Would an alarm clock be adequate providing it met the other operational requirements

Thank you,

Hi Bunny,

Here's a link to the ISV Software Testing Framework: https://partner.microsoft.com/global/40011374#cert

I don't know if that really clears anything up for you or not. If not, go ahead and contact the Partner team directly through the Partner Regional Service Center - https://partners.microsoft.com/PartnerProgram/ContactMicrosoft.aspx. They should be able to answer your questions.
