Compatibility Issues – Do Some Programs Not Run on Windows 7?

You installed Palm desktop version 6.2 on a computer running Windows 7 64 bit. It now opens with media only. It opens with all Palm modules if you open that program with "Run as Administrator".

Is there any way that you can open it with all modules ie. calendar, contacts, etc. by just clicking an icon and not going to "Run As Administrator" option each time? If you must run a program as an administrator, you may want to set up a program so that you automatically run it as an administrator. To do this, right click an icon that you use to run a program, and then click "Properties".

On a "Compatibility" tab, click to select a "Run this program as an administrator" check box, and then click OK. Your program should now run as an administrator each time, without you having to manually run it as an administrator. Also, if that program won't run at all you can select a different operating system in a drop down list.

You can try each different compatible operating system until your program runs correctly if at all.
