Fix: How to install the applications in the compatibility mode

Compatibility Mode is the word that can never be avoided in the Windows 7 Operating System. Most of the programs are written for the Windows XP Operating System and work in the Windows 7 Operating System. However, some of the programs don’t run in this operating system. Therefore, if any of the programs don’t run in the operating system, you can use this Program Compatibility Wizard to change the compatibility settings for the program. You can use the individual program’s compatibility tab to install the programs manually.
•    To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon (.exe file) for the program and click Properties.



•    Then, click the Compatibility tab.
•    Now, it is required to select the “Compatibility Mode Settings” that match the operating system for which the application has been originally designed.
•    You may also select the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” to install the application.
•    Here, you can select the operating system with which the application is compatible.



•    Sometimes, the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” option will be disabled. In this case, it is required to select the “Run this program as an administrator” under the “Privilege level category”.



•    Then, select the “Change settings for all users option” and select the exact operating system.
•    Now, click on Apply and then click on OK.
•    This should successfully let you install the application in the computer.
