When installing software on Windows 7 often times you see a dialog at the end that says:

This program might not have installed correctly
- reinstall using recommended settings
- this program installed correctly

This link says how to shut it off on a per-machine basis
http://gnoted.com/disable-this-program-might-not-have-installed-correctly-windows-7/

Can you disable this via GPO's? We need to turn this off on 2,000 Windows 7 machines.

Ooops! Some outstanding software pilot staging there, eh? This should be in the build but, obviously, it's too late for that. Make sure it's in the next release.

Create a package which stops then disables the service. Alternatively, IIRC, you can set a program's compatibility in your packages.

They are set in the registry.

Here is one I set for an exe and a service to run as W2K3SP1 on W2K8 x86 or x64.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers]
"C:\\Program Files\\Quark\\Quark_License_Administrator\\Server\\QLAServer.exe"="WINSRV03SP1"
"C:\\Program Files\\Quark\\Quark_License_Administrator\\Server\\QLAServerService.exe"="WINSRV03SP1"
"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Quark\\Quark_License_Administrator\\Server\\QLAServer.exe"="WINSRV03SP1"
"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Quark\\Quark_License_Administrator\\Server\\QLAServerService.exe"="WINSRV03SP1"

The default is to set it under HKCU, but you can change it to HKLM without issue.

I'd be tempted to NOT disable the service but ensure that the flag is set for whichever executables require it.

I stopped and disabled the service and then added the reg key (under HKLM) and I still see this dialog pop up. I was a little unsure what to add in the reg so my guess is I added it wrong. I put this in:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers]
"\\\\Server\\Share$\\App\\SourceFiles\\setup.exe"="AppName"

Is that wrong?

I already have the ACT, what part of it do I need? I need to create a shim?
