    Hi Guys

    Quick Question about application compatibility in Windows 7.

    When you right click on an .exe and select the option ''run this program in compatibility mode for'', lets say Windows 95.

    What exactly does the exe do, or how does it install in a way that makes it compatible? Surely Windows doesnt find a way to emulate the different OS environments and thats what allows the application to install as if it was installing on windows 95?
