Video problems with Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba

There are compatibility issues with Windows Vista and this program

To overcome these problems we need to force windows Vista to use an
older Video format (from the days when the program was first published).


A short cut has been created and placed on your desktop.
The compatibility (properties) on the short cut have been set to –

  • Windows 95
  • 256 colours
  • 640 x 480


This is how to use the program Adventures in
typing with Timone and Poomba
on a
computer running Windows Vista


  1. Do not put the CD-rom in the computer until you are asked
  2. Indentify the shortcut/icon on your desktop to start the program
    Look for a large letter T with the description below
    it Video fix – Adventures in typing
  3. Click on this T icon
  4. When the computer asks for the CD-rom, place it
    in the disc bay and wait for the program to start.
  5. Use the program as normal.
  6. To quit the program so that it saves the progress you
    have made – use the QUIT symbol in the
    program’s screen
  7. When the program has shut-down, remove the
    CD-rom from the disc bay
Note that steps 1 through to 7 have to be done every
time the program is started and stopped.

You will not have to do anything to put settings back to where
they should be – Windows Vista will do that automatically.

This is how to stop any program if you are
having problems and can not see how
to stop it.

  1. Press the following two keys together Ctrl Alt
  2. While holding those two keys down, press a third
    key – the Delete key
  3. A menu will pop up.
    Click once on the Task Manager option
  4. A new window will open with a list of the programs that are
    running on your computer. Click once on the program that
    is causing the problem.
  5. At the bottom of the new window click on End Task
  6. The program that was causing the problem will be shut
    down for you.
Note that using this method is a sort of emergency stop so it will not
save any new work you have done on the program/file.

    Oops I forgot to include the following information for those who are not usign windows Vista or do not know how to create shortcuts and adjust the properties

    ************************************************************

    To create the short cut –

    Place the CD-rom in the Disc bay and hold down the Shift key while the the CD-rom boots up. This prevent Autorun.

    Now use My Computer to look at the files and folders on the CD-rom.

    Look for the Setup.exe file.

    Right click on it and create a short cut that will be placed on your desktop.

    Go to the short cut and right click on it to select the properties.

    Now change the compatibility to the settings mentioned above.

I own the DK Multimedia "My Amazing Human Body" CD, version for use with Windows 95. I am unable to use it with my Windows XP operating system. I understand that you might offer an upgrade...


In your case..the fix is to run the program in compatibility with windows 95..
Insert the disk ..and after that if it let's you install it is great ..Install it ..and after that click on the icon (right ) choose compatibility ..and in there tick the case that says "run this program in compatibility mode for : " and choose windows 95 ..
If it do not want to install it at all ..repeat the same thing with the execution icon on the disk ..
Insert the disk ..than in my computer folder..locate the cd icon ...click right on it ..select compatibility ..than tick same case...to run it as windows 95..and will work ..
In case the feature is not available cause the program is on disk and can not accept properties changes...click right on the icon of the cd ....choose explore... and it will reveal all that it has inside..
Copy all files in another folder on your hard disk ..in a location of your choice ..Than the properties will be able to be changed..and repeat the operation I says ..Locate the executable icon ...click right /properties//compatibility ..and select to run in compatibility with windows 95 ..and there will be no more issues..

I purchased the mysterious adventures bundle. 16 complete games. it will not install on my windows 7


Go to the web site and find the game and it's description.

There should be a section describing system requirements. See if Win7 is listed/supported.

You can also try these two other options (may or may not help).

1) Try Running the install as Administrator
Right click on the file you want to run (install) and select "Run as Administrator"

2) If it is older software, try running/installing the software in in XP Compatibility Mode
To read about XP compatibility mode:

Go to start menu
Select Help and Support
Type xp compatibility in the search window

Select #2, Make older programs run in this verison of windows

There are instructions on how run the install using compatibility mode.

How can I install my Quark 7 on my new Windows 7? All I get is 'QuarkXpress 7 requires that your computer is running Windows XP or Windows 2003. Help!


Start the Windows "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Tell it that you want to install a Windows XP application.
Tell it that the software to be installed is on a CD-ROM.

I am looking for a monitor driver for Windows Vista for LT1919


Windows XP and Vista should "auto-detect" the capabilities of this LCD screen.

If not, access http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
and scan for updates.
When the scan is done, look for "optional hardware" updates.
If Microsoft has a driver, it will be offered for download.

Cannot run Professor Tim's Incredible Machines on my pc


Try running the setup file and game in compatability mode for Windows 98. It should cure it. It is likely that the software does not recognise the hardware on your computer though, and if this is the case the software won't run at all.
