I have an application to install on Windows Server 2008, which is not natively supported by the installer. The application installer permits installation on Windows Vista(or XP, or 7). I do not want to use compatibility mode; even if I did it doesn't work.
So, how can I spoof the installer to believe it is Windows Vista(or XP, or 7) so that it can proceed with the installation?
Notes: This is an experimental machine, so I am not concerned about stability of the host or the application.
