Old alchemy game will not install

\015 Trying to install an old alchemy game from disk. When trying to run disc I am getting an error message saying D:/Poppack-setupexe. This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect.\015\012\015\012What do I need to do?\015

Answers :

Open a file compression utility, like winzip or 7zip. Drag poppack_setup.exe to the window. All the files should be listed. Extract the files to folder. You can now run alchemy and bejeweled by double-clicking on their exe files. No 'correct' installation is needed. And of course you can create shortcuts so you won't have to go the files every time you want to play.
Try this:

Right click on the D:/Poppack-setup.exe -> Properties = Compatability Tab.

There should be a box that says "Compatibility Mode" that you need to chek, and then select Win95 and hit OK.

Try installing again.

If it still gives the same error, go back to the tab and go lower than the Compatibility Mode box, to Display settings, and chek "Run in 256 colors" and "Disable Visual Themes"

Try again.

If it still wont work, please respond. If it gives a different error at any time or a different problem, please respond.

If it works, please rate. :)

I've had 2 Big Fish Games for over a year. Star Defender 3 & 4. Somehow over time either from something I did or a glitch in the program It now fails to play. I've downloaded them numerous times to no avail. When I click to start the game, I get a momentary blink on tne screen as if it wants to load but can't. I've also gotten a message that I have to close a game that's in progress which is not the case. There's a link missing that keeps me from playing. Maybe you can help?
