I would really like the full text of the solution that contains the use of the Run command. There is normally no 'browse' command. You could type 'explorer' instead as that will bring a browse window up on screen.

Can I ask you in all candor, did you buy this game title from an overseas foreign country and not a local retailer or online store? Thanks for your indulgence.

Now, to get Run to display on your start menu, you need to be logged on with Administrator privledges, and you probably have them. Right click an empty area of your task bar at the bottom on the screen, the same bar that contains the Start button and the digital clock. Once, you right click this, select Properties. a pop up dialog box will display and have more than one property sheet identified by page tabs. Click on the Start Menu tab. From this new property page, click on the little button for Start menu and then click on customize. There will be a long list displayed with check boxes for features. Scroll down until you see the Run Command and check that. Now you can begin exiting out of the property pages. Usually press OK or hit ESC until everything is off screen.

Now click on the Start Menu again and you should see the Run command in the second column. Click on that, a little dialog box comes up with a text entry line. Place you mouse in this text area and click. Now type "explorer" with out the quotes thou. This would be what your help text was driving at, not necessarily browse.

Now, you should be able to follow the rest of the directions, probably leading you to finding the CD/DVD drive and then having you perform a manual install.

Let me know how you make out. You can ask me more questions by using the comment box below this text so leave this browser screen up on display. Once you send me a message this way, I'll receive an email alert right away. I'll be online there in the Pacific Time Zone for a few hours. I am GMT -7 if you are in another English speaking country (common on FixYa). If need be we can pick this up tomorrow.

I can also bring another expert in to confer with me and you should the situation warrant it. Okay?

Thanks,
Worldvet

My pc crashed i need to reinstall yahtzee that i purchased from gamefools


Hi,

It seems that gamefools have taken Yahtzee out of their list. However, you can download another form of the game at the following link: LINK

It is a fairly simple version.

If you do not want to download the game you can also play it online on Yahoo at the following link: LINK

I had my comp. fixed and they put windows vista home premium on here and i can't play my old games that need xp what can i do


You can do 2 things:
1 - try to run them in XP mode  - right click on its icon, then Properties, then Compatibility, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' and select Windows XP in the drop down menu and finally at the bottom of the compatibility tab, check 'Run this program as administrator'.
2 - install http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/ , configure it and in it install XP and all the soft with problems, starting with the games.

Cannot install CARD GAMES for Windows


It's probably an issue with Vista, right click on the icon, go to properties, run as administrator, and run in compatability mode for XP. If this doesn't fix the problem, try contacting the software manufacturer.

I need an activation key for my windows vista home premium


If you installed Vista from a box that you recently purchased then the key is on a yellow label on the back of the pull out section. If your PC originally had Vista and the label was on the bottom of the machine then Microsoft should it with your registration.

Hi, I have just recently purchased


Some of the games for windows games which support controllers are ridiculously finicky. Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge moto gp 07 is one of those. There may be a workaround pushed into an update somewhere though, so make sure your game is fully updated.
