When you say that you are unable to play , do you mean its not loading ? unable to install it? do you get a specific error message when you try to launch it ?

The Learning Company Super Solver Mission T.H.I.N.K. was released in 1999 for Windows 3 and probably Windows 95/98. It could run under XP in the compatibility mode.
For a newer Windows OS, you need a workaround. You can use a a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software in the virtual computer using the compatibility mode and it should work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If your computer has a USB keyboard and mouse, you will need to use Win98 or newer OS. (However, the drivers may be an issue with Win98.)
For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the compatibility tab, check the box for Run as compatible with an older version of Windows. Then launch the program.
I hope this helps.

IS there an option in the main menu to change the controls and set if you want to you a keyboard or controller or mouse. That might be the problem and it needs to be check on keyboard. Hope I could help
Is it an older game? Just for fun you could try Windows 98 compatibility mode. Right click whatever icon you use to launch the game, click the Compatibility tab up top. Then click the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" try Windows 98. Secondly, you should uninstall the game, reboot, reinstall the game.
You better dig that old Win98 machine out of the closet and fire it up. Oregon Trail doesn't want to install properly even when you run the install and set up in Compatibility mode (95 or 98). There is some issue with the version of DirectX it wants to use as well.
Sorry friend but this game is not compatible with Vista and there aren't any patches. However you can try your luck here. Go thru the thread
