How to run pre-Vista programs in Compatibility Mode

The Windows Fanatics weblog details how to use Vista's Compatibility Mode to run apps that aren't quite Vista ready. Here's how:

1. Right click the executable and click the Properties option.
2. Select the Compatibility tab.
3. Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option.
4. From the drop-down list, choose the operating system you ran before upgrading to Vista.
5. If necessary, select the option to run the program as an administration.
6. Click OK.
