Compatability at least in XP seems to be set on the Program itself in the registry, even though it seems like your tagging a shortcut. *THE USERS KEY\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers* Try and test that, set it on the executable itself , then test it from your launcher. – Psycogeek Nov 10 '11 at 20:52
Thank you so much! All you have to do is right click on the executable itself. Can't believe I didn't try this before – Oliver Tessmer Nov 11 '11 at 15:45

If you always want to run the app in compatibility mode, you can select it in the start menu or explorer, right click > properties, then go to the compatibility tab and choose "run this program in compatibility mode."

The menu looks like this:

Compatibility Mode
