i try to set the compatibility mode in Windows7 in my C# project. Normaly, it is no problem: Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers and add a new REG_SZ. Name = Path (C:\test.exe), Data=WINXPSP3 (for WindowsXP SP3 compatibility)..

The Problem comes with CD/DVD. There you can't set the path with the Driveletter, but you have to set "SIGN.MEDIA=1234567" for example instead of "F:\".

Is there a way to get the SIGN.MEDIA-ID? Because it changes with every ISO-File i create and burn.

thank you

  • is there an other way, to set the compatibility mode for an executable on my CD/DVD? – Kevin Busch Jul 25 '11 at 13:51

    Why do you change compatibility mode on a medium that you create? Do you want to set compatibility mode to software you deliver? – Wolf Jun 30 '16 at 11:24

I think the question should be rephrased. – Wolf Jun 30 '16 at 11:50
