Before applying a new base layer or app layers, or both, to a CVD or collection of CVDs, you can run a report that describes the potential effects of the base layer or app layer changes on the CVD contents.

The Comparison report can help you plan the layer update process and resolve in advance conflicts that might result from mismatches in the layer contents on the selected CVDs.

For more information, see Detect Potential Effects of the Layer Change and Comparison Report Format.
