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

I am trying to run a very old game on my windows vista 64 bits but an error pops out saying: your pc has no graphics accelerator


try running it in dosbox www.dosbox.com it works for a lot of games, or it might be that your graphics card just isn't good enough, but as you say its a old game, i cant see how the graphics card would be inferior, you do have the latest drivers installed for your graphics card, don't you?

I have a copy of starcon 3 but it won't install on my computer my os is windows 7 but it says that the game isn't compatable with my version of windows


Hi, welcome to Fixya. I hope my info helps you.
What it said is true. Starcon 3 is an OLD game, with compatability with win 95, and DOS. I think there may be a way for you to get to work though, right click on the installer program, and put the program in compatability mode, and tell it win 95 for the o.s. If that doesn't work, then download a program called DOSBOX, and run the installer with it, Dosbox is designed for just this sort of thing.
I hope that you do get it to work, as Starcon 3 was a really good game when it came out.

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.
