Some compatibility modes missing for certain exe's ?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I found that I can get the Xerox Phaser 5500 postscript driver not to crash in Vista x64 by flagging x2jobtAO.exe to use Windows 2003 Server Sp1 compatibility mode.  However in Windows 7 x64 I can't do that but I can for other executables.  Only Windows Server 2008 Sp1, Vista gold, Sp1, Sp2 modes are available.  Is there a way to get back Windows 95, 98/ME, XP, 2003 modes???

  • Hi,

     

    I would like to suggest you perform the following steps to troubleshoot this issue.

     

    1.    Navigate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers].

    2.    Create a new String Value in the right pane, and name it with the full path of the program’s exe file.

    3.    Modify the full path of the program’s exe file with the following Compatibility Mode Date value.

     

    Windows 95 Mode  WIN95

    Windows 98 / Windows Me Mode  WIN98

    Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5) Mode  NT4SP5

    Windows 2000  WIN2000

    Windows XP (Service Pack 2) Mode  WINXPSP2

    Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 1)  WINSRV03SP1

     

    Does it work?

     

    Regards,
