I am running Origin with "disabled desktop composition", it allows me to see second monitor when I play Battlefield 4 (I can't set this option on x64 executable). But when Origin starts it shows popup:

Origin Compatibility Mode Pop0Up

How can I disable the pop-up without disabling compatibility mode?

UPDATE: Another reason to have compatibility mode: When I play Battlefield 4 after 5-10 minutes of starting game, windows show "Not enough resources - disable themes" popup. But it not remembers choice in this dialogues because BF4 has x64 executable file. I disable desktop composition in advance, so this dialog is not appearing during game.

  • You tried switching off compatablility mode? – Skye Jul 10 '15 at 20:22
  • I explained in question why I need compatibility mode. Of course this dialog is not shown with disabled compatibility mode. – Ivan Solntsev Jul 11 '15 at 9:29
  • So, what's your question? – Skye Jul 12 '15 at 22:40
  • My question: is there any way to skip this message, while leaving Origin in compatibility mode? – Ivan Solntsev Jul 13 '15 at 8:38

    You can't disable that but why dont you play battlefield in borderless window(which is nearly equal to fullscreen)? that would allow you to see the 2nd monitor too – Nitro.de Jul 13 '15 at 8:53

Right click on the origin icon, click propertie, and go to compatibility. Make sure nothing is checked. That should fix it.

  • This is not what I was asking for: I want Origin to remain in compatibility mode but get rid of warning popup. – Ivan Solntsev May 21 '16 at 13:12

Use RegEdit to navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers

in Windows Explorer and Right-Click -> Delete anything to do with Origin.

  • It would add value to your answer if you explained why the files at this path needed to be deleted. – JAL Aug 31 '16 at 21:33
  • In this question I enabled compatibility mode myself. I don't need to disable it. – Ivan Solntsev Sep 1 '16 at 20:43
