QuestionIs it necessary to install a program, with known compatibility issues, in compatibility mode? Pin

What I mean is simple but a Google search on the above sentence returns everything that could possibly be senseless about it with the worst at the top.

Grammatically the "install" is the subject. And by the subject I mean nothing to do with "running" the direct object "program" but "installing" it; that's the active transitivity.

Compatibility mode as applied to an executable is determined by the OS on which one's running that executable, in this case, an installer. And I know there's an issue with what gets installed (doesn't "run").

The reason I ask, is because apparently Windows 10 and even Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 can elevate privileges for an installer ... or it can't. And I don't know what the criteria for automatic raising of this security level is nor do I really care. So, adding "best practices" into the mix, and obviously to avoid all the experimentation that has to be done as well as the cleaning up of any clean installing, a laborious tedium I can assure you, does anybody have any experience with this?

This is not a joke. I'm just trying to cut to the chase by avoiding confusion about whether the FAIL is Type I and Type II.
