Is it possible for this to work in Windows 8?

asked by (120 points) about Device Stage Visual Editor

Opening it in Windows 8 gives the error, "This tool is supported only for Windows 7." Running it in a virtual machine would not be preferable, as it needs access to hardware at the driver-level. Is there any way to spoof the operating system, or otherwise run it in Windows 7 short of downgrading?

There is no way to spoof the system. Although Windows 7 is somewhat like Windows 8, there are new features in Windows 8 that the application doesn't know how to handle them. You can't use it in Windows 8 even if you manage to bypass the limitation because of changed routines and subroutines.
