Visual Studio 2013 Install Fails: Program Compatibility Mode is on (Windows 10)

right click on the installation file then navigate to the detail tab, you see the original file name there, rename the installation file to the value of the original file name, then start installation again.

In my case, I tried to run from a mounted ISO. exec name are okay. I fixed the problem by copying all ISO files to the hard disk.

Answer that worked here.

They recommend checking the installer file name. It needs to be the original name oddly enough for the setup to work.

Disabling the Program Compatibility Assistant is not the right way.

A solution that works on Windows 10 is:

  • Right-click the setup file
  • Select Properties and navigate to the Details tab.
  • There should be an entry labeled Original filename. Simply rename the file accordingly and it should run.
