Try starting the program by clicking on "Test the program" in the compatibility mode wizard. (Right click on the exe, select Troubleshoot compatibility).

Then (after having pressed "Test the program"), click "Next" and It then asks you if it worked, say "yes, save these settings" and it will save the compatibility mode settings.

Hi,
I can't get a program to install from the exe.
I used compatibilty mode, but then when I click on "test the program" it won't open because I don't have it installed....regular old catch 22.

I get the message "App won't run on your PC". It's not an app, it's an small program.

Suggestions, please.
Driving me crazy.
