HowTo delete app compat. settings?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Security' started by Thomas Boerkel, Nov 23, 2006.

  1. HI!

    Vista has automagically made some compatibility settings for some
    applications, namely "ElevateCreateProcess".

    How can I delete these settings (I want to try again with a different
    version of the apps)?

    I can see them in the Compatibility Wizard and in the Application
    Compatibility Manager (from ACT 5.0). But neither of them seem to be
    able to delete these settings.

    I think you want to use the program sdbinst.exe in the windows system32

    Usage: sdbinst [-?] [-q] [-u] [-g] [-p] [-n[:WIN32|WIN64]] foo.sdb | {guid}
    | "name"

    -? - print this help text.
    -p - Allow SDBs containing patches.
    -q - Quiet mode. No message boxes will appear.
    -u - Uninstall.
    -g {guid} - GUID of file (uninstall only).
    -n "name" - Internal name of file (uninstall only).

  3. HI!
    Hmm, as far as I understand, this tool is to install and uninstall user
    compatibility databases.

    But I have not installed such a thing. I am looking to remove the
    compatibility settings, that Vista itself has done.
