After the feature analysis is completed, click the Close button and the UFA Report is loaded into the UFA Report Window. You can view the analysis result in the left treeview and modify the unsupported features by following the instructions in the Workarounds for Unsupported Features in Workarounds & APIs Guide, which is also available at http://www.appeon.com/support/documents/appeon_online_help/workarounds_and_api_guide/. The Guide provides examples of some common unsupported features and ways to work around them.

In this tutorial, the application contains no unsupported features.
