Cant enter it on computer


First here are the minimum requirements needed to run it:
  • Windows XP
  • Pentium III 800 or AMD Athlon 700 MHz processor or faster
  • 256 MB of RAM
  • 1.1 GB free Hard Disk space
  • 8X CD-ROM drive or faster
  • 32 MB DirectX 8.1 compatible 3D Video Card (64 MB recommended)
  • DirectX 8.1 compatible Sound Card
  • DirectX 8.1 or higher
  • 56 Kbps or better Internet connection or LAN multiplayer


My guess is you are trying to run it on vista or windows 7 though and since this game came out in 2001 it's a pretty old game and if you are trying to run it on Vista and Windows 7 you will encounter problems. Download a copy of Dosbox or Virtualbox and use it to run your games. They work very well for older games.

Will 1944 across the rhine run on Windows Vista Ultimate?


i can run 1944 atr fine now on windows 7
- it does just involve using Dosbox - which is an awesome program that can run most ms dos games and allows for alot of tweaking so the game runs perfectly.
get dosbox, its free - and then read up on how use it
you can then just mount the cd drive or cd image in dosbox and install the game from there. - you can then even just make a shortcut with added commands that will run the game by just clicking on the short cut
make a conf file for the game - i found that switching cpu to normal and having cpu type as a 'pentium_slow' works well

Is there a driver/file available that makes cyberia2 of microsoft work on windows 7? When trying to start the game it says no support f full screen mode and if run under dos it wont run eighter. Pls...


If it's a DOS based game (which I believe it is based on what I'm reading), you'll need to install a DOS emulator. I believe DosBox http://www.dosbox.com/ is popular, but there are a few others if you search around.

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 !

Interactive Magic Apache Windows 95 program disk does not load into HP Pavilion - Light Strobe DVD/CD Burner. I have Windows Vista. Can it be done?


You must use Dosbox, get it at www.dosbox.com. Follow instructions and you will be able to play most old dos games. I started playing Apache 95, the game before the one you're trying to load and it plays just fine with graphics, etc... I love that game and when computer technology got better my old dos games fell by the wayside until I found dosbox.
