Vista: Making installed app run in XP compatibility mode

I've been testing my installer under Vista lately, and discovered that the installed app doesn't play well with Vista's Aero (glass) UI. (The installer, amazingly, works great without modification. Great work, everyone!)

I would like to somehow mark the app to run in XP compatibility mode, which will force the app into Vista Basic UI (non-glass) mode. In other words, I would like to do the equivalent of right-clicking on the app's .exe file, choosing Properties then Compatibility, and selecting XP compatibility.

Does anyone know how to do this? Or, better yet, avoid this hassle completely? (I was hoping there would be some setting in the Vista manifest to do this, but I can't find it if there is.) Changing the software to be glass-friendly is, unfortunately, not an option giving our release schedule.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
