Hello
I went through the app I had on hand, but it must be the same
Right click on the file, properties, compatibility
simply tick the corresponding box, apply

I am trying to find where it is installed
but it seems to me that it is an app, it may not be that simple!

[edit]

so we have to be cunning
the file is in windows apps

You probably have to modify something else, because it is a particular program
After modifying the compatibility, if you run the program from the start menu, it indicates the same thing
It is impossible to launch it directly from the folder, it gives an error massage
It is necessary I suppose to modify the security options of the file.
But there is better to avoid I think, not sure that it works, and a risk of crashing everything
I hesitate to test on my computer there

Not interested in hacking  anything, i cant  see  why HP has  made it this way so we  cant  just set  it  in its options.

So HP Please fix it.

No, I do not recommend it!
I had found solutions, only that seemed to bring security flaws, in this case I did not indicate anything!
Also no guarantee that it works
This may not be the first Hp program that requires this, I do not know why we have to go through this!
But it would be necessary to give this idea in comment, I am not sure that to say it here, is useful !!
