Log on as Administrator,
Right-click the shortcut, and then click Properties,
Click the Compatibility tab. This tab appears only if the Compatibility-mode interface has been properly enabled on the computer,
Click to select the Run in Compatibility Mode check box to enable Compatibility-mode support for the program,
Click either Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0 compatibility mode in the drop-down box,
Click OK to save the changes,
Double-click the shortcut to run the program.
