Having problems with your Computer Games ?

My game is loaded but when i click on the icon. it will not play?

Answers :

Ok, from what I read on Microsoft, this software is NOT compatible with Windows Vista 32-bit or 64-bit. That was found directly from:


However, checking the company's website, it mentions that some games that normally won't run in Windows Vista, can be ran in a "compatibility mode" which mimics Windows XP. Follow these steps and see if this corrects the problem:
  1. Right-click the shortcut for the game.
  2. \015\012
  3. Click the compatibility tab.
  4. \015\012
  5. Check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode".
  6. \015\012
  7. Select Windows XP SP2 (or Windows 98 if XP does not work) from the drop down menu.
  8. \015\012
  9. Click Apply
  10. \015\012
  11. Click OK
  12. \015\012
  13. Start the game
It should run in Windows XP SP2. If it doesn't you can try Windows 98 to be sure. If neither of these work, unfortunately, you may be unable to play this game.
