    I get "please run autorun.exe from the CD"... :-(

    I have the same problem. The solution given does not work (nice try, though). For me, the game opens fine, but once you click "install", it loads for a few seconds, and then nothing happens. I'm not sure why this is.

The game was released back in 2002, that means it was designed for older versions of Windows OS (Windows 98/ME/XP). The updates for the game do not have any patches for the installation to be compatible to the new Windows Vista OS as they were released on November, 21st 2002 aslo that patches resolve functionality issues after the game is successfully installed.

Some game ".exe" file (executeable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply".

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

There are lot of files that need to be changed in order to get full functionality and to communicate with operating system and the hardware, hence there is no guarantee that the game might run even in cases where you will successfully install an older version of the game with the above mentioned steps.

The same set of steps can be used for installation of older games installation on Windows Vista.

I cannot install the Tag?s driver on Windows Vista and the game will not run wthout them, what can I do?

Infernal is copy protected with \Tag?s\". This requires you to install a Tag?s driver which is found on the game disc and should be installed when the game is installed.

Unfortunately the Tag?s drivers on the Infernal disc have not been Vista certified. If you are using Windows Vista you won't be able to install the Tag?s drivers and to start the game. You need to download and install the following certified drivers:

Apologies for any inconvenience.

FYI THIS IS A FIX FOR WIN 7 as well x64 and x86

Cant run Sierra, Lighthouse: The dark Being on my laptop. i have a Vista ops. Ive tried using dosbox but cant get passed installing it using that. and i get and error 142: when just using windows


Hello, You can play the Lighthouse game on Vista / Seven by installing this software :http://www.squirtthecat.com/games/lighthouse/index.html

I used it but at one step of the game, the sounds bugs and I get an error.
So I used the DOSBOX version, installed with this link :http://www.sierrahelp.com/Files/NewInstallers/LighthouseForDOSBox.exe

I managed to install Lighthouse for Dosbox (I had the ISO, not the CD), chosing "local install", and mounting the iso on a F: virtual drive. Then I had to change a line in the dosbox.conf file :in [autoexec], old line : mount d -t cdrom -ioctl
new line : mount d F:\ -t cdrom -ioctl
Now I can play Lighthouse on Vista ok.
Good luck !

Help game doing my head in lol


Vista is trick like that.
  1. Un-install it fully, then re-install it.
  2. But before you play it you have to right click on the shortcut and go to properties and click the button that tells it to run as if it is xp.
  3. Update the game, there should be a few of those.
Well and give yourself permission to play the game. Vista is bad at that.

You should be good. Let me know how it goes.

Cant install sims 2 double deluxe.


Hi there, is the disc damaged at all? if it is, but not very deep scratches, try polishing the disc/disc's, with a very soft cloth. make sure you clean the disc from centre outworse not side to side like most people do, if there is any stains/marks on the disc, try watching them off my damp soft cloth and cleaning it gently, and then dry with enough soft cloth inwards out again.

Also go to your program files making sure there isnt any semi installed versions of Sims, if there is delete the folder for the Sims 2 Double Delux and try again :)

Also alot of games dont install with windows vista, why i am still using windows Xp, untill windows 7 comes out to the public.

Hope you found this helpfull.
