Windows Compatibility Mode allows programs to run under different settings in Windows 10.  This allow the program to think it is running under a different version of Windows.  Examples Windows 8, Windows 7, and so on.

With all the updates Window performs, it’s hard for software vendors to keep up with all the changes.  So if your program is running a little strange after a Windows Update, try running in compatibility mode.

If you are running an older version of Sage 50 or Peachtree Accounting on Windows 10 you may experience shutdowns were the application just quits.

You may also experience problems running a newer version of Sage 50 with your program is set to compatibility mode.

You control compatibility mode settings using your Sage 50 or Peachtree Accounting Desktop Icon.

To turn on Compatibility Mode:

  1. Right-click on the Sage 50 icon on your desktop.
  2. Select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu.
  3. At the top of the Properties Dialog Window click on the Compatibility Tab.
  4. Check the “Run this program in compatibility mode for:”
  5. Using the Combobox below and select either Windows 8 or Windows 7.  This will depend upon which version of Windows you have installed.
  6. Click the OK button at the bottom of the Properties Dialog Window.

To turn off Compatibility Mode:

  1. Right-click on the Sage 50 icon on your desktop.
  2. Select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu.
  3. At the top of the Properties Dialog Window click on the Compatibility Tab.
  4. Uncheck the “Run this program in compatibility mode for:”
  5. Click the OK button at the bottom of the Properties Dialog Window.
