Windows 7: setting compatibility mode on a network drive app

26 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 64-bit Pro
setting compatibility mode on a network drive app

I have an application that can run off a network drive so users can access it from different locations. We have recently added a Windows 7 system, and know that the problem needs to run in XP Compatibility mode when the application is installed locally. However, I am looking for a way to set this compatibility mode on the network drive install for my Windows 7 user.

So, is there a way to change the compatibility mode of an application running off a network drive? Or does the application have to be on the local harddrive?
