Windows 7 automatic compatibility issue

Hello forum, a couple of days ago windows 7 decided, upon no special event what so ever (i just moved AutoCAD window), that AutoCAD needs automatic compatibility forced (worked just fine with no issues what so ever). I got that "program did not work properly and i will apply automatic compatibility on the next use" message. No way of telling it screw you leave everything as it is.

Since then i had some performance issues with AutoCAD. Is there any way to get it out of that damn automatic compatibility?

Win7 64bit
Acad 2014

Thanks in advance!

Hello TheTrooper, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The tutorial below can help show you how to disable the "Program Compatibility Assistant" in Windows to prevent it from happening again in the future.
Program Compatibility Assistant - Enable or Disable
Next, check using OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to look in the registry to see if there may be a string value entry for the AutoCAD program in the Layers key at both registry locations. If so, then you can delete (step 5) the string value for the AutoCAD program. You may need to restart the PC to apply afterwards.
Compatibility Mode
Hope this helps,
Shawn
