    Program Compatibility Assistant


    Program Compatibility Assistant gives me continuous alerts that "an app can't run on this device" but the alert doesn't say which app and all the apps I'm using are running fine. I've tried everything suggested in these forums to turn off this bothersome notification without success. Is there a way to determine which app is causing the alert? Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Computer type: Notebook

    How to stop the Compatibility Assistant at Windows 10 ? [SOLVED] !!!

    Hi,

    Program Compatibility Assistant automatically excludes programs running from network locations and programs containing fixes applied to them in the application compatibility databases. To provide you the appropriate steps that can resolve your concern, we’d
    like to verify the following:

    • Are you getting any issues with Compatibility Assistant?
    • Did you receive any error messages or error codes?
    • What is the build version of Windows installed on your device?

    Regards.
