Vista can be a real stubborn operating system when it wants to be. Not all older games are compatible with Vista. Vista does offer a work around that can resolve this issue, some times. What you will need to do is find the executible file that starts the installation routine. This may be called setup, or install. Right click on the file with your mouse. In the menu that shows up, click on properties. Under this selection, you will find a tab that says compatibility. Click on this, and put a check mark in the box which says "Windows XP (Service Pk)" Click ok, and then try to reinstall the program. If the program is already installed, do the same thing in the icon that you click on to start the program. Good Luck.

My game won't open, it says "New GFXSurface failed...get tech support..."


for some old games you usually need some kind of emulator, basically this will allow you to run a game in an environment the game was designed for.

out on a limb here but i assume usage of windows vista.

Is ultimate solitaire 1000 compatable with windows vista?


It is designed for Windows XP, running DirectX 9.
You can try running Backwards Compatibility that Windows Vista provides backwards compatability with win32 operating systems.
Only warning is that not all programs run efficiently and there might be bugs because of the different Operating Systems and the OS software was built for.

If you visit their website specific to the games you have, there should be a compatibility list.

Sounds like it is not compatible but it's worth a check.
