Windows vista is incompatible for most of the programs and games. You would have to buy a vista-compatible version of the game.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. The problem that you have occurs because the program or application that you are trying to install is not compatible with windows vista. The game was released before the release of windows vista or even xp that's why it is not working. You can check the maker of the game and see if they release the patch for the windows vista version if not then there's no way you can play it on your system.
Thanks

I'm trying to play rise and fall civilizations at war but i tried to play it after installing it and an alert came up saying there was compatibilty problem. please help


Depending on what operating system you have, it might legitimately be a compatibility problem with the OS. For example, if it's a 64 bit game and you're running it on a 32 bit platform (unlikely), or if the game was made for XP and you're playing it on Vista or 7.

One of the possible solutions (for the XP and Vista/7 problem, or basically any problem similar) is to right click on the .exe for the game and change it to compatibility mode. Go to My Computer>C:>Program Files (or Program Files (x86) in Vista/7)>Midway>Rise & Fall etc etc...It might not exactly be that directory, so in order to find it you can find its entry in the Start menu and right click on it, and go to properties. In the resulting menu you should see "Shortcut Target" or something to that effect that tells you the directory in which the game is located.

Open that directory and find the executable for the game. It should have a little mini picture of the game and should be named the same as the title of the game. Right click on it and go to Properties, then go to Compatibility. Check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode" and select the operating system in the drop down box for which the game was designed (You can find it on the back of the box). Now try running the game, and it should work in theory.

Unfortunately, I've had no luck with compatibility mode. Another option that might or might not work (depending on the requirements of the game) is to run it on a virtual machine. You can download VirtualBox as a virtual machine emulator, then create a virtual machine with the desired operating system. You have to have access to a licensed copy of the target OS, however, so if you don't have one this probably won't be the best solution for you. Also, virtual machines have a bad habit of not being compatible with certain graphics engines, etc, so it might not work anyway...Just a thought.

Though I've never used it, Windows 7 (if that is your operating system) users can download something called "Windows XP Mode" which lets you run programs which were designed with XP on your windows 7 platform. I believe it's some form of virtualization that's done, but as I've never used it, unfortunately I can't give you any helpful advice as to how to install, set up, and run it. You can most likely find anything/everything you need online. If you have any specific questions let me know and I can do some research and see what I can find out. Best of luck!

Problem running Civilization IV with Windows Vista


Okay, i play Civ IV on my system and i run Vista as well. Your best bet is the tweak with the compatibility. Find the install folder and look for the .exe that launches the game (civ.exe i think, don't hold me to that though). Right click on it and click on properties, then the compatibility tab. Try dropping the compatibility to win xp and see if that helps. If it doesn't, post your system specs and we'll work from there

I can not install Boggle on a Vista system


You could try to rightclick the setup.exe, select properties, go to compatibility and run it in Win95 compatibility. You can also try to make a shortcut to the game, then doing the above. There could also be a map called DIrectX on the disk. Try opening the executable in there, install DirectX, then try the game again.
Otherwise you're out of luck. Microsoft doesn't support old games, gets you to buy new ones. I don't like it either, but there's nothing you can do about it but switch back to Win95

HOMM4 is not compatible with the normal Vista Pro operating system. You can try to run the install in WINXP compatibility mode, and do the same with the game. I would also use the following URL to download all of the updates for HOMM4:

Error code 113 move data


Im no games expert im afraid,but it sounds like its trying to install to the wrong location.

For example;

Check it is installing to something like "C:\Program Files\tigerwoods"

What is your operating system,ie Vista/XP etc

From what i can see,these are old games and may not run on Vista (assuming you are using Vista) .

But may run in compatibility mode ;
To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon for the program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.
If Vista,also right click the .exe and run as administrator.
