Does anyone know if DDS Scanner will run on Windows 8.1? I do malware help on another forum and asked a poster to run DDS scanner but he received the following error:
 

DDS is not meant to run in 'Compatibility Mode'.
The program shall now exit.

 

Poster was not aware he had compatibility mode turned on and doesn't know how to turn it off. I see that Windows 8 is not one of the operating systems noted for DDS scanner though I have seen it run on Windows 8 without difficulty.
