Can't Turn Off Program Compatibility Assistant

Feb 22, 2014

I'm in need of installing IntelliType 6.x to be able to use all functions of my Microsoft Office Keyboard, but the Program Compatibility Assistant doesn't let me, even though I've correctly set the policy rules (as described here) and even turned off the Diagnostic Policy Service.

The only options I have is "get help online", which tells me that I should download the latest version, and "close" which doesn't run the installer at all.

I understand the program might not work, but Microsoft should at least allow people to bypass their "Let Microsoft decide for you" BS (which I've met like six billion times by now) and let the idiots (i.e. me) take the risk of ruining their computer if they want to.

Virtualization :: Windows 8.1 - Can't Get Rid Of Program Compatibility Assistant

Jul 16, 2014

I'm trying to set up Virtual PC 2007 SP1 on Windows 8.1 Pro with Update.

By default, the Program Compatibility Assistant blocks this with the following notice:

The easy way to get around this is to rename the installer and then rename the main EXE that gets installed. There are a few other tricks (including replacing VMM.sys) and then it works. However, the EXE rename appears to be affecting my ability to double-click on a VM to start it so I thought it would be nice to just disable PCA altogether so I don't have to rename the EXE. Following the various instructions (including some from Microsoft), I haven't been able to disable PCA. Specifically, I have:

1) Attempted to create an EXE exclusion by editing the registry and creating a REG_MULTI_SZ value called "ExecutablesToExclude" with the full path to the Virtual PC.exe excutable in the following registry locations:- HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAppCompatFlagsCompatibility Assistant- HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionCompatibility Assistant

2) Changed the following Group Policy settings:- Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Application Compatibility:Enabled "Turn off Application Compatibility Engine"Enabled "Turn off Program Compatibility Assistant"- User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Application CompatibilityEnabled "Turn off Program Compatibility Assistant"

3) Stopped and disabled the following services:- Application Experience- Diagnostic Policy Service- Program Compatibility Assistance Service

Despite doing all of this, I keep getting the error popup above. It keeps coming back from the dead like {insert your favorite horror movie villain here}.

In the Event Viewer logs, I also see a "Critical" error (event ID 2) from source "ApplicationExperienceInfrastucture" that says "The application (Virtual PC 2007 SP1, from vendor Microsoft) was hard-blocked and raised the following: Virtual PC 2007 SP1 is not supported on this version of Windows. For more information, contact Microsoft."

I'm guessing that Microsoft changed PCA in the Windows 8.1 Update but hasn't documented the changes yet. How to fully disable PCA?

Apps / Software :: Win 8.1 - Cannot Backup From Program Running In Compatibility Mode

Jan 21, 2014

I've installed Quicken 2004 on Windows 8.1 in compatibility mode for Windows XP 3 to run as administrator. Everything seems to work well. All my data appears to have been restored including Home Inventory. I can download bank data.

Automatic backup works. I tested this by changing the system date to trigger the backup.

The infuriating thing is I cannot do a manual backup from the file menu. The dialogue box opens. I can complete the relevant fields but when I click OK the program freezes. There are no error messages.

Not sure if this is a Windows issue e.g. permissions or Quicken issue e.g looking for a file that doesn't exist. I have checked the 'Ready for archive' box of the folders, sub-folders, and files property boxes.

Are there any settings in Win 8.1 that I need to change to allow a program to write to a drive when it is running in compatibility mode for Windows XP 3 as administrator?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 - How To Uninstall A Program Installed In Compatibility Mode

Apr 27, 2014

In windows 8.1, I installed the Lenovo Power Manager which is not yet available for this system, and I did it running it in compatibility mode, as described in the next link

Lenovo forums : Lenovo Power Manager in Windows 8 - Page 3 - Lenovo Community

and it got installed correctly, and seemed to work asking for a reboot that I did

The problem: I run into a BSOD and I believe it is due to this software (safe mode works ok)

So, as I try to unistall, and the uninstaller is called from "ADD or REMOVE PROGRAMS", all I get is again the message: "Warning : Cannot run on this system"

And of course, here there is not compatibility mode wizard .. How can I complete uninstall and clear this?

Program Not Showing In Open With Context For HTML Files

May 18, 2014

I have a windows 8.1 64 bit PC with a program called 1stPage.exe installed.

When I right click a .txt file I get 'Edit with 1st Page' in the context menu and it also shows in the open with menu.

However HTML files do not show these options. I have checked the registry and it would appear that the program is set up on the open with menu exactly the same for both file types.

So it would appear that something is blocking 1stPage from showing against HTML files but I can't figure out what I need to change.

Graphic Cards :: AMD Compatibility With Windows 8.1

Dec 13, 2013

My Sapphire AMD HD 7870 just bit the dust so it has been sent back with an RMA. I had hoped to replace it with an ASUS AMD HD 3850 but Windows 8.1 will not work with it. There is an error message on a blue screen something about a header (I don't have the exact error message today).

I suspected it was a driver problem so uninstalled the existing driver and tried to install the latest AMD one. I can uninstall OK but as soon as I reboot the Microsoft driver installs itself giving me no opportunity to install the AMD one.

How To Check 5Ghz WiFi Compatibility

Apr 16, 2014

So I have recently switch over to 5ghz wifi, I look up how to check the 5ghz wifi compatibility, it state that if my computer have 802.11a or 802.11n network modes it's compatible to 5ghz wifi. My Windows 8 computer have 802.11n. That should be mean my 5ghz wifi should be showing up, but its not. My Iphone 5S is able to connect to my 5ghz wifi. But my computer is not.

The way I check is type "netsh wlan show drivers" In Cmd, then i look at Radio types supported, it listed as 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.

Hardware Drivers :: Windows 8 USB Compatibility With Sony DVD Camera

Feb 6, 2013

I have a Sony DVD camera (mdl DVR-HC85) that has USB and firewire cables for connection to a computer for the purpose of transferring video to computer programs. Both cables work fine with Windows XP. However, Windows 8 will not recognize the camera when connected by a USB cable. I was told by Sony that neither Windows Vista, Windows 7 nor Windows 8 will recognize the camera when using a USB cable.

I have a Dell computer with Windows 8 that does not have firewire nor can a firewire card be installed.

How To Get To Properties Of A Shortcut In Win 8

May 3, 2013

But I'm afraid there is not a setting in Windows 8 to get this done. Okay, then I handle the programs seperately! Until Windows 8 I could always rightclick a shortcut, then get "Properties", then I chose "Maximized". But to my unpleasant surprise I only get the latest documents (Which is very handy indeed!), and a choice to "Loosen the program of the taskbar".

No Navigation Tab On Taskbar Properties

Nov 23, 2013

I cannot seem to get the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane, only the "taskbar properties" pane. I am running as administrator and have upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 on a new laptap that I have just purchased, but am still having trouble getting the "taskbar and navigation properties" when I right click the taskbar.

The "taskbar properties" only gives me three tabs ie. taskbar, jump lists and properties, but I need to access the navigation tab on the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane.

Win 8 64bit - Can't Edit MP3 Details In Properties

Aug 28, 2013

My previous OS was Windows 7 64-bit. I used rip my favorite music tracks and was able to edit the details in the Details tab of the Properties window after right-clicking on the file name. The system hardware is the same. OS is now Windows 8 64-bit. But when I open the mp3 file's property window and go to the details tab, I get fewer options in detail and I CANNOT edit any one of them. I have run sfc - no problem. I have opened the Explorer as Administrator and still the same issue. Here's the screen capture:

I am the sole user of the desktop PC. And that I have another PC at another place with same configuration also running Win 8 64-bit. On that PC for the same file I see more details on the screen and I can edit the fields. I might post the capture from that PC later when I go there. I also ran the mp3Tag to get over the possible issue with ID3 tags.

Properties Option In Menus Not Work Normally?

Jan 17, 2014

First of all I want to say that this is not much big of a deal to me but still annoying nonetheless. I noticed that in some scenarios, for some reason, the "Properties" option in the rightclick menu of a file doesn't do anything when clicked on. You'd expect that a properties box of the concerning file would show up but nothing is happening. So far I noticed this in the following 2 scenarios:

1. When selecting multiple files in the Recycle Bin at once and then right click and choose Properties. Selecting only one file in the recycle bin and clicking Properties does work normally.
2. When right clicking on a picture that is shown with Windows Photo Viewer and then choosing Properties.

Are these bugs that Microsoft developers might have missed or is my PC at fault here? I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro x64 with Medica Center.

Different Characters In File Properties Instead Of Numbers

Feb 1, 2014

I am using a Dell laptop with Windows 8 Home. The file Properties show strange symbol-type characters where there should be numbers etc. See Screenshot...

It's been like this for a while and I have probably installed half a dozen programs etc. so I don't know what did it. I don't want to upgrade to v.8.1 as it took me ages to get a 3rd party Start button set up and 8.1 over-writes it I rolled back to a previous image of v.8.0 (True Image not System Restore).

Unable To Edit MP3 Properties In Windows 8

Oct 29, 2013

I have just recently acquired a brand new laptop running Windows 8, and I'm experiencing an issue with editing the details of MP3 files. I can right-click any MP3 to open its properties and access the Details tab, but when I click on the fields for the different tags, nothing happens.

I don't recall ever having this issue on my previous laptop with Windows Vista, so I'm at loss trying to understand what is going on here. I'm not very tech savvy about the subject of permissions and accessibility, but it doesn't really seem to be related to that. The files are listed under my local user directory.
