    I have Windows 2000 pro installed and I'm trying to run some old DOS games.

    As per: "How To Enable Application Compatibility-Mode Technology in Windows
    2000 SP2 and SP3" found at:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;279792

    I have run slayerui.dll sucessfully AND verified that the explorer.exe key
    is in the AppCompatibility register.

    However, a view of the properties for an exe application does not display
    the expected "Compatibility" tab.

    Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong??

    Thank you.

    With Windows 2000 you must create a shortcut to the exe file and then go to
    the properties of that and you will see a compatability tab.
