Install Application in Compatibility Mode

If you are using Windows 10, then it is quite simple and easy. You simply have to find out executable file of the program in C Drive and then do the steps accordingly.

Remember

There's a lot of issues with this.

1. The application is not known. Without that, no one can see if it's possible.
2. There's no need for such restrictions unless it's not your PC. If it's a work/school suppled PC the answer is "ask your IT."
3. Sometimes I can find a no-install version of the app I need. For example:
https://portableapps.com

Tell more so folk can help you. Also, why must we install if we can find the portable version?

Programs aren't installed in compatibily mode, they only are run in compatibility mode, once installed.

Why I asked for more detail.

The more common question is how to install while in Windows Safe Mode. I don't expect folk to get their questions spot on so I took it they are in "confused mode."

Under the Compatibility tab, check the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” option, and then choose which version of Windows you want to use.
