Windows 7: Win XP compatibility

09 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Win XP compatibility

I have no choice but to try and load a program onto my Windows 7 machine that only has WinXP compatibility (well not 64-bit Windows 7 anyway)
It is Samsung PC Studio for what that is worth.

So my plan is to load it in XP compatible mode .
The thing is there sem to be 2 parts to the program .1 is the program as such and the 2nd part is the usb drivers.
I understand the procedure is to find the application file ,go to the compatibility tab and select WinXP.

So my question is how do I know which are the right applications to change in this way?
When I go into the folders there are quite a lot different ones .
Is it really as painstaking as it seems ?
I don't think when I just load the CD I am given an option to load in XP mode and when I click on the CD itself there doesn't seem to be an option to change all of the contained applications to XP compatible.
Again I think I may be able to run the whole Win 7 operating system as WinXP but this seems like overkill
