Disabling the Application Compatibility Assistant (the rights and wrongs)
Firstly see this
for reference. I decided to disable the ACA so it would not arbitrarily automatically set some compatibility mode on the program again.
What would be the repercussions of doing this apart from the obvious inability of windows not to be able to run a program. Then again surely if a program cant run in the latest greatest version of windows, its time it was either updated or replaced?
