    That happened to me to. I tried the carosel game on vista and it will not work. they are supposed to be putting on new (old games) that will be compatable but I do not think they have done that yet. Apparently any game before Danger by design will not wok on vista

    You can do this to install older Nancy Drew games, but I am having (I think) the same exact problem with the SSH game, too. Even after I tried installing it the way like in this video..http://youtu.be/hOZ0UwNKsho

Uninstall the game...
Then open the CD drive and find the setup.exe
'right-click' and 'run as adminstrator'.
Install the game and then reboot.
The game will then work.
It works on Vista and Windows 7 perfectly.

if you desperately want to play nancy drews that have that problem, there is a way but this way youl have no sound but the game will still play.
Go into the directory where you installed the game and then o into the game.ini file. it should open in a notepad.
go to sound system is active=1.
change the 1 into a 0. then enjoy. the game may have no sound but its still the game ayyy
nd dont try and change the volume or else the game shut down.

SECRETS OF THE OLD CLOCK- NANCY DREW


If I was you, I would check the system requierments (located either on your CD Case or somewhere in your manuel, probebly under the title "System Requierments".) and see if your computer is compatible.

If the game requierments are met, I would try and uninstall the game, and try and reinstall the game.

If you have difficulty uninstalling the game try this program, by clicking on the link. http://www.revouninstaller.com/

This program will help you remove all game data on the computer, and will alow you to reinstall the game.

I hope this helps.

You create a new folder, name it something like "deception" and save it. Then insert the disk and begin install, when it asks you where you'd like to install it, click browse, and install it in the folder you created previously. It won't work if you just install it in the recomended folder...
