Fix Compatibility

Compatibility, in simple terms, means the capacity of a program to work with a specific system environment. Applications are designed targeting a specific Windows environment, for example, Windows 10 64-bit version. A program designed for a 32-bit operating system may work on a 64-bit machine, however a 64-bit program may not work on a 32-bit OS version. Similarly, older versions of the application may not work on newer Windows machine. Worry not, Microsoft provides a built-in tool to check for features that might be preventing the program from functioning and set it up accordingly.

  1. In the Search Box, type Run programs made for previous versions of Windows, and open it from the Search Results.
  2. Click Next.
