    Program Compatibility Assistant


    What this feature does
    If an incompatibility error is found with a program you attempt to run, Program Compatibility Assistant will try to help you resolve the compatibility issue. There are two types of programs that the feature can help with:

    • A known incompatible program: If the program is on the list of known incompatible programs that is included in Windows Vista, the Program Compatibility Assistant starts. If the program is known to cause a serious problem, it will be blocked. Otherwise, Program Compatibility Assistant warns you about the incompatibility problem and offers you the option of running the program. In either case, the Program Compatibility Assistant offers the option of checking online for information or solutions.

    • A program that fails in a way that indicates incompatibility: If a program fails in a way that is typical of incompatible programs, the Program Compatibility Assistant starts and offers you the option of running the program again with recommended compatibility settings. For example, the Program Compatibility Assistant will start if you attempt to install a program that requires Windows XP compatibility mode.

    Information collected, processed or transmitted
    The Program Compatibility Assistant works with the Microsoft Error Reporting Service to report incompatibility errors to Microsoft. Error reports may be generated that include information such as the program name, the needed compatibility settings, and your actions with the program so far. If you attempt to start a program on the list of known incompatible programs, an error report is created only when you select the option to check online for a solution. If the program fails in a way that indicates incompatibility, an error report is immediately generated. Unless you have previously consented to report problems automatically so you can check for solutions, you are asked if you want to send the error report. Microsoft does not use the information to identify you or contact you.

    For more information about Windows error reports and your privacy, see the Privacy Statement for the Microsoft Error Reporting Service at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=50293.



    Use of information
    Error reports are used to provide you with responses to problems that you report for your programs. Responses contain links, when available, to the program vendor's website so you can learn more about possible solutions. Error reports created due to program failures are used to try to determine which setting to adjust when you encounter application compatibility problems for the programs that you're running on this version of Windows.

    Choice and control
    You can choose if you want to use the Program Compatibility Assistant to report compatibility errors to Microsoft. Administrators can use Group Policy to disable the Program Compatibility Assistant or Windows error reporting to prevent data from being sent to Microsoft.

    Program Properties—Compatibility Tab


    What this feature does
    If you have an application compatibility problem, you can use the Compatibility tab to make program settings adjustments to attempt to run the program successfully on this version of Windows.

    Information collected, processed or transmitted
    When you apply compatibility settings using the Compatibility tab, a Windows error report is generated that contains the program name and the compatibility settings used. Unless you have previously consented to report problems automatically so you can check for solutions, you are asked if you want to send the error report. Microsoft does not use the information to identify you or contact you.

    For more information about Windows error reports and your privacy, see the Privacy Statement for the Microsoft Error Reporting Service at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=50293. For more information about the Compatibility tab, see the Windows Help and Support topic, "Make older programs run in this version of Windows".



    Use of information
    Information sent by the Compatibility tab to Microsoft is used to determine which setting to adjust when you encounter application compatibility problems for the programs that you're running on this version of Windows.

    Choice and control
    Administrators can use Group Policy to disable the Program Compatibility Tab or configure Windows error reporting settings to prevent data from being sent to Microsoft.

    Program Compatibility Wizard


    What this feature does
    If you have an application compatibility problem, you can use the wizard to make adjustments to how a program works and attempt to run the programs successfully on this version of Windows.

    Information collected, processed or transmitted
    If you choose to send them, the results of running the Program Compatibility Wizard, including settings and problems that were encountered with the application being installed, are sent to Microsoft as a Windows error report. Microsoft does not use the information to identify you or contact you.

    For more information about Windows error reports and your privacy, see the Privacy Statement for the Microsoft Error Reporting Service at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=50293. For more information about the Compatibility tab, see the Windows Help and Support topic, "Make older programs run in this version of Windows".



    Use of information
    Information sent by the Program Compatibility Wizard to Microsoft is used to try to determine which setting to adjust when you encounter application compatibility problems for the programs that you're running on this version of Windows.

    Choice and control
    You will be asked if you would like to send the information to Microsoft and may choose not to. Administrators can disable the Program Compatibility Wizard or prevent data from being sent to Microsoft using Group Policy.
