  1. compatibility issues


    Hello, Microsoft.

    I bring you a question which is also a request. But I beg you beforehand that you don't take my words wrong, as a form of abuse from my part.
    I would like to ask you if there is any form of loss that you would suffer if the previous versions of Windows would be offered for free, for those who want to virtualize them via their ISOs.
    I ask this because the software, the apps, etc., that are made nowadays, are made for nowadays operating systems, which includes Windows 10. But, let's say, for instance, people who like to play old games can't do it, because there is no compatibility. There is a compatibility mode in Windows 10, yes, but, let's face it, it's far from working properly, as it should. There are, let's say, games for Windows 95 or 98 which don't even install properly, because the installation file is prepared to run in a system that is not recognized when the file runs.
    If there is no software right now being made for old operating systems, if you don't even produce them or sell them anymore for years, if there is absolutely no money at all you can gain with them right now...then what would you lose by making Windows 3.1, 95, 98, XP, available for free, let's say, for VirtualBox emulation? Because this one runs on ISOs from old systems, and these require the old licensed installations CDs, but who has them? The only way to get them now is through software piracy, which is illegal.
    Like I said before, please don't take this as an abusive request. I only wanted to make a point and ask for an answer. What I suggest would would be an extremely good way to fix your compatibility issues...or, even better, is there a way to make the compatibility modes run on a virtualization/emulation basis?

    Please answer me shortly.

    Thanks for the attention,

    J. L. Braga

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Compatibility issues in Windows 10

    Hi Vicki,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. I regret the inconvenience caused to you. Let me help you.

    I suggest you to download and install the software from the developer website and check if it resolve the issue.

    You can also install the program in compatibility mode and check if it resolves the issue.

    Follow the below procedure.

    Run the program in the compatibility mode.

    If a program or driver written for an earlier version of Windows doesn't run properly in current Windows, then you could try using
    compatibility mode on the program to hopefully allow it to run properly.

    I suggest you to run the program/game in the compatibility mode and check if it helps. Follow the below steps:

    • Right click on the program icon, click on Properties.
    • Click the Compatibility tab.
    • Check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box and select the Preferred
      Windows.
    • Click on Apply and click OK button.
    Check if it helps.

    Please keep us posted on the issue. We will be happy to assist you further.
