SOURCE: I have the DK pinball

Ok, I know how to fix this.
Find the exe file that starts the program, and right click it.
click on properties.
Then click the tab for compatibility
there will be a check box that you will need to check to run in compatibility mode, and a drop menu that offers different versions of windows to run under.
select windows 95 , then click apply.
close the property box, and reboot
when the computer starts back up, the program should now run, as it has now been told what to do for compatibility.

I have DK "I Love Science", catalogue Number


I bought this cd-rom cheap and tried installing it on my windows 7 pc. I noticed it only says xp and vista on the specifications. This is what I did to get it working.
1. I went to the DK support webbsite at
http://www.avanquest.com/UK/corporate/contact/tech-support.html and registered with my name and email address. I don't know if that is essential as the file can be found here http://www.gspsupport.co.uk/media/patches/DK/WING32.DLL save it to your hard drive or desktop. Now windows 7 would not let me save it to the windows32 folder as I did not have permission even though I am showing as an 'sdministrator'. You need to do the following:- 1. go to the start icon on the bottom left of your screen, type cmd.exe and the file should appear on a list. Right click on the cmd.exe file and click on 'run as administrator' then a small 'dos based' window (for you old computer users) and type in the following at the 'command line':- net user administrator /active:yes
then log off, then log back on, you will have the choice of logging on as yourself or the administrator. Log on as the administrator, copy the wing32.dll file into the c:/windows/windows32 folder.

You will want to turn off the adminstrator account as it is too dangerous unless you are the only user of your machine. To turn off just go to the start > typr cmd.exe, right click on the cmd.exe file and 'run as administrator' again and type into the command line:- net user administrator /active:no
then log off and back in as yourself and it should work. Saved me $3.99 as I would have thrown the disc into the bin,

Program not running


I just solved it! Thanks to the help of the previous post. The link was no longer good. But here is the new working link:
http://support.selectsoft.com/customer70/ViewCase.asp?Casenum=33&ReturnPage=FAQ

If this link does not work for you, then simply go to:http://support.selectsoft.com and click on the tab for PC/MAC support. It's listed as one of the top ten FAQ's.

OR

Search the term "DK" in their Search Help Database (without bothering to tell them what type of computer you have, OS, software, etc). It should come up right away. This is a fix for Windows XP. Should work for Windows 7 too, if you're running virtual xp (though I haven't tested that yet.) Not sure about vista.

Sidenote: This is a good place to get info on the 3MB virtual memory fix too, which some older programs require. The short version is this...just set your virtual memory (Start/controlpanel/System/Advanced/Performance - Settings/Advanced/Change) to 4000.
