Can I install program and drivers in compatibility mode on Win 8 / 8.1?
On Windows-8 or 8.1 it comes to problems if you have an old driver or an old program that was written, for example, for Windows Vista or Windows 7.
When during the installation the driver or program installation will be abort, because the operating system is not compatible.
Here you can start the installation program in compatibility mode, see the FAQ here:
... run on Windows 8 programs in compatibility mode!
The driver installation programs make always operating system compatibility tests. If Necessary, you get on Windows 8 some of the XP drivers to run. But if you have at least one for Vista or Windows 7 is better to use this Driver.
But some very old printers be written only for Win-XP and the manufacture no longer supported the old Printer.
