    Curse of Monkey Island, sorry, its the third in the series. I'm guessing that its not compatible with my version of windows home vista

    I cannot get Curse of Monkey Island to install onto my laptop on Windows Vista, it says 'The curse of Monkey Island could not be run from the launcher. You may try running SETUP.EXE directly from the install folder on the disk'. I have tried this and it doesn't do anything....help.



    Cheers

I can't run "Curse: The Eye Of Isis" in Windows Vista - any hope ???


I have a "virtual" copy of Windows running on my computer at home that use for running older games and applications. There are several free programs out there... Microsoft has one: Virtual PC and there is a Open Source version hosted by Oracle: www.virtualbox.org With a dual-core or higher, 2GB or greater RAM, you can run a virtual desktop with ease... All you'll need is a old copy of Windows to install (e.g. Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 98)

I've uninstalled and re-installed Blitzkrieg Anthology with my CD-ROMs and I am not able to play the game, everything loads fine but when I try to play the game the screen map does not pop up, gives me...


Try updating your video card drivers. However, according to the specs, it's not supported for vista.

Vista site is equally unhelpful.

Had a quick browser on the forums. Have you tried this vista dual-core patch?

I have Curse: The eye of Isis, and it dosnt work on my windows 7/ home premium. Is there any patch I can get?


DreamCatcher no longer lists this game at their site: http://www.dreamcatchergames.com/dci/pc.php . So there are no patches available in the support site.

Curse: The Eye of Isis was issued for XP and older versions of Windows. The installers and drivers are totally different with Windows 7. What version of Windows 7 Home Premium do you have? If you have the 32-bit version, the compatibility mode might work. (It is less likely to work with 64-bit Windows 7. However, there are no guarantees for either version.)

To try using the compatibility mode: right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Make sure the program is running in the compatibility mode if it does install by doing the right click and Properties step again.

A method that will work but will cost more money is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you buy an upgrade to 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 software from your CD in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

I have Mahjongg variety pack. I was using windows xp. I now have Vista. It will not play on vista.


I just installed it tonight. (Yes, I have Vista.) Two of the games work great. All I did was right click the icon that was on my desktop (I made copies and put them on my desktop - the program didn't do this), clicked on properties, clicked on the tab called "compatibility", checked the box that said, "Run this program in compatibility mode for", and from the dropdown list, I chose Windows 98/Windows Me. Also, I had to temporarily disable Avast, and turn off "real time protection" on Microsoft Security Essential (I turned it back on after the games were installed.).

The games that work for me are Mahjongg Empire and Mahjongg Master 3. Rahjongg the Curse of Ra is being obnoxious (I came on here to find a solution) and the other one won't do anything, not even install. Anyway, I hope this helps you get at least the first two games installed.

The game is made for 32 bit system, and mine is 64 bit. what to do?


You can try and run the game in XP compatibility mode in Vista or Window 7 64 bit. run it in 32bit compatibility in XP 64bit. This is set in the icon properties.

You can also use Virtual PC or dual boot to another OD install, since the 32 bit XP can run on a 64bit system perfectly well.

It's more work but I recommend the second solution over the first. Dual booting between out productivity software and out games is unfortunately the price to pay for a good gaming experience.
