I would like to play an old game, IL2Sturmovik-Clifts of Dover on Windows 8.
The game it compatible with Windows 7.
I was told that you can "tweak" Windows 7 into thinking it is Windows 8 so that I can play the game.
Can this be done and how?
Many thanks in advance if you can help.
Ben.

Well, you can enable compatibility mode by looking at the properties for a shortcut to the game.

A good answer LiveBrianD but the Windows 8 option does not show in "properties" there is only XP/Vista and 7!

What I mean is to select 'Windows 7' for the older game on the Windows 8 machine. It might not be necessary at all though.

Hi, Ben.

Did you mean to say that you can tweak Windows 8 so that it behaves like Windows 7?
