Compatibility Mode for device driver

I have a X-Rite DPT41B Spectrophotometer. I use it for color profiling on Wideformat printing. My RIP has been on a MS Vista PC, upgraded recently to Windows 10. The driver doesn't work on the Windows 10 machine. I've heard of compatibility mode in windows. Is there a way to get Windows 10 to use an older driver using that mode?

You can only try. Applications use compatibility mode. Drivers usually either work or not.

You can build a Vista virtual machine and see if you can run the device that way.
