Here I will blog my daily efforts as a System Admin and hope that others will find answers here to problems that I already found the solutions for. I work with Hyper-V, DPM, SCCM, Office, Infopath, SQL Server, SQL Reporting Services, SharePoint, Windows Servers, Windows 10 and the 3CX PBX.
I'm running the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 and I wanted to install the Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 software because I need the advanced controls, but the installer was doing an OS check and blocked the install.
I worked around the OS check by using Compatability mode.
Right click on the installer an choose Troubleshoot Compatability.
It will simulate Windows XP SP3 and everything will then install.
