Programs or applications developed for earlier versions of Windows may also work in higher versions of Windows, but some may work poorly or not at all. As a last resort, you can try running Program Compatibility Troubleshooter to simulate the behavior of earlier versions of Windows when an older program does not work properly. The program can be better adapted to an older version of Windows. Program compatibility troubleshooting allows you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with different settings. This allows you to emulate earlier versions of Windows so that a program thinks it is running on the operating system it needs.
We have already seen how compatibility troubleshooting programs works under Windows 10 / 8 / 7. If you need to run this wizard frequently instead of opening the Control Panel each time, you can create the shortcut on your desktop.
Right-click an empty area on your desktop. Choose New > Shortcut. In the first field of the shortcut wizard, copy the following into the field :
%systemroot%system%system32msdt.exe -id PCWDiagnostic
Click Next. Shortcut name: Shortcut Compatibility and click Finish.
Then select an appropriate icon.
