For the Window 10 Ready, your app should comprise following requirement during the verification-
1. Compatible and Durable App
Microsoft will allow your app in the terms of compatibility and flexibility on the Window 10; whether you prefer Window 10 Ready. The following points must be adaptable when verifying the app on Window 10 Ready OS-
- When your app in process on Window 10 Ready, it must not depend on Window compatibility solutions like AppHelp message, VB6 runtime, compatibility modes etc.; means your app should use its built-up fixes.
- The application must be aware of DPI; therefore it has to use assembly manifest rather than SetProcessDPIAware.
- Microsoft will certify your app if it has compatibility manifest and appropriate GUIDs.
- The application should not use arbitrary DLLs to interrupt Window32 calls also should not use Microsoft or Window NT or Window AppInit dills.
2. Supporting Window Security
Microsoft certifies your app support Window 10 security\privacy features to manage the reliability of Window OS. Some of the security features your app must execute are-
- Window 10 offers APTCA security feature that should not be used by your third-party app while ensuring secure accessibility.
- Your application has to compiled with /SafeSEH flag (to safe exceptions handling), /NXCOMPAT flag (to prevent data execution) and DYNAMICBASE flag (to address space layout randomization).
- For Window 10 verification the application should use strong ACLs to secure directories and register keys.

- Your app must provide an Authenticode certificate to sign the files like .sys, .ocx, .exe and .drv etc.
- Whatever Kernel-mode drivers are installed by your app, that all have to generate an MS signature which attained through the WHCP (window hardware certification program).
5. Pursuing User Account Control Instruction
- The app should provide a manifest administrator that identifies the execution levels and suggests the Window 10 OS what licenses are needed to run the app.
- The Manifest administrative features should be executed in a split process that runs with administrative opportunity.
- The MS waiver demands the application to run their main process with prominent user’s rights.
- Users should feel a secure and reliable experience with default installation whether managing the installation of the application in the location of their preference.
