To use compatibility mode the .exe has to be on the computer. If the software won't install from a dvd or cd you will have to iso it using magiciso or ultraiso or poweriso then once it is on your hard-drive find it using Windows Explorer (start/all programs/accessories/Windows Explorer) and use winrar to extract it to user data into a folder. find the .exe for the installer and right click it and choose properties then compatibility tab then choose run as.... keep trying a different method until it installs.

How do i put mycomputer into compatability mode, i have windows 7


You don't actually put your computer into compatibility mode; you run a program in compatibility mode. Right click on the program, choose Properties, then the Compatibility tab. Place a tick next to Run this program in compatibility mode for: then choose which operating system you'd like. Hope that helps.

What is compatible mode How it will be converted to Full version


Compatibility mode helps users collaborate with those using previous versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. A file created in previous versions of Office, such as .doc, .xls, and .ppt, are fully functional in compatibility mode in the 2007 Office system. Compatibility mode ensures that the 2007 Office system can open and save files in from previous versions of Office without converting them to the new file formats in the 2007 Office system.
Just select "save-as" and save the file in 2007 format.....And when you will open the newly saved file...It won't show "Compatibility mode".

Have a nice day :)

How to Use Windows Application Compatibility Mode Published: October 25, 2001

This article describes how to use Windows Application Compatibility mode. This mode provides an environment for running programs that closely reflects the behavior of earlier Windows operating systems.
Using The Windows Application Compatibility Mode

When you use Windows Application Compatibility mode, many of the most common issues that prohibit earlier versions of programs from working correctly are resolved. If you run a program and it does not function as expected, it is recommended that you run the program in one of the compatibility environments.

To run programs in Windows Application Compatibility mode in Windows XP

  1. Right-click the icon of the program that you want to fix.

  2. Click Properties.

  3. Click Compatibility tab.

  4. Click Run this program in compatibility mode and select one of the following options:

    • Windows 95

    • Windows 98 / Windows Me

    • Windows NT 4

      bb456979.image1(en-us,technet.10).jpg

  5. Under Display settings, check the mode that you think is necessary for the program to work correctly:

    • Run in 256 colors.

    • Run in 640 X 480 screen resolution.

    • Disable visual themes.

      bb456979.image2(en-us,technet.10).jpg

  6. Click Apply.

  7. Click Ok.

  8. Double-click the program icon.

    Note The Compatibility tab is only available for programs installed on your hard drive. Although you can run the Program Compatibility Wizard on programs or setup files on a CD-ROM or floppy disk, your changes will not remain in effect after you close the program. For more information about an option on the Compatibility tab, right-click the option and then click What's This.

Itunes .exe has been set to run in compatibility mode for an older version of windows. i already tried to change version but cant find windows 7 version also turned off compatibility still no luck


Unfortunately, even though I'd turned off compatibility mode for iTunes (by right-clicking the iTunes icon, choosing Properties, clicking the Compatibility tab, and clearing the Compatibility mode checkbox), the program generated this irksome message every time I ran it:

iTunes.exe has been set to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. For best result, turn off compatibility mode of iTunes before you open it.

Sigh. Stupid Windows. Or maybe stupid iTunes. Either way, compatibility mode was "off," but iTunes didn't think so.

Fortunately, I finally found a solution:

1. Make sure iTunes isn't running.

2. Click Start, type regedit, then press Enter.

3. Navigate to this Registry location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers

4. Look in the main pane for a key that refers to iTunes. If you find one, delete it, then exit the Registry.

5. Start iTunes. The offending message should be gone!
