Compatibility mode vs Run as administrator

My operating system is Windows 7. I am running Act! For Financial Professionals and have had to modify the compatibility mode to XP service pack 3.   Or I can run the program as administrator.  Is there an advantage to running either one or doesn't it matter?

Don't know for sure, but I would guess that using compatibility mode might technically be more "secure"...?  (from what, I do not know)
