Friends:

I am in need of information on replicating "compatability mode" settings when moving executables to host machines. Does anyone have any ideas on this. I have searched technet, as well as the web for info on this, and have been found wanting.

I have the answer, and am posting it below to my own thread...

I dont know if thats possible but a workaround would be to make a batch file that enables compatibility mode, runs the program and then switches off compatibility mode.

the following code runs a program called filename.exe in windows 98 compatibility mode.

CODE
set __COMPAT_LAYER=Win98
filename.exe
set __COMPAT_LAYER=
exit

Below is a list of modes you can use:

256Color
640x480
Win95
NT4SP5

The following codes sets Win95, 640x480 and 256Color

CODE
set __COMPAT_LAYER=Win95 640x480 256Color
filename.exe
set __COMPAT_LAYER=
exit


Thanks,
