You don't "put Windows 8 in Windows 7 compatibility mode" - you install your Windows 7 programs using Compatibility mode. See here on how to do that:

Were these programs written for Windows 7? If they were then they should work OK in Windows 8...

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
