DUMPERMAN,

 

            If this is a program that you do not install, then you should copy it to a folder on your hard drive then tweak the compatibility mode on the .exe file for the bridge program itself.  If it used to run directly from the disc then it is a stand alone program that is not installed.

 

            You can't tweak the compatibility settings (at least not effectively and permanently) for a program stored on optical media and it's not worth the effort.  Once it's on your hard drive (or SSD) it's much easier to deal with compatibility mode.
