Windows 7: Disabling aero on a per-application basis

Disabling aero on a per-application basis

Is it possible to run only one specific application with aero turned off?

"Properties > Compatibility > Disable desktop composition" will disable it globally.

Nope. GUI is a global item.

Somewhere in the bowels of Windows, there is something that changes the video settings to run an app in a compatible mode. It has been a while since I ran anything that did that, and I can't remember what it was, but I did see it.

I read somewhere, some people saying it was possible in Vista. I have never used Vista, so I ask: were they wrong?

I have no idea. I trust what logicearth has posted. I am simply sharing my experience. Just because Windows can do a particular thing does not mean that there is a way to hack it out through the GUI.
