Windows 7: Compatibility Mode

No, I am quite sure because, i had already communicated and they only asked me to remove the compatibility flag in the registry entry.
But, Brink, this is true that when i right click and trouble shoot the mbam.exe, it prompts to select recommended settings and if i choose, but not applied it, it shows windows xp service pack 2. Is it not strange?
Or should the entry should also be found in hklm to work correctly?
Normally when you trouble shoot, if there is no issue, then i get trouble shoot could not identify any problems or issue. But it prompts me to select. Is it a bug in their program.
I am reading every article to spruce up my knowledge and your articles are narrative and leave nothing , otherwise, strange things . The tutorials are excellent.

I suppose it may have been set by mistake?

Luckily it's easy to remove the flag for it.

Hi,

i got reply to the effect that there is no bug in their program. How to check for this. Would the insall log show any thing on this? or window itself would assign those comp flags?

Hi, Brink ,

I uninstalled using their uninstaller and reinstalled. Now, i again tried their check tools and there is no app comp flag shown in HKCU or HKLM. But when i click trouble shooting forcibly, the trouble shoot shows me the option of recommended settings. It is strange.I will again check with their check tools once again to see whether there is a forced entry in app comp layer ....folder in hkcu or hklm. will report
Would any program if accidentally , tries to troubleshoot would invariably show compatibility issue even when there is none in both the registry entries?

Hi, Thanks, pl reply to this part of query

In internet option, if troubleshoot is selected, and if there is no issue, it gives, like Trouble shoot could not find any issue.

If compatibility issues were found while using a troubleshooter, it could set the program to use a compatibility mode.
