Hi, phoogland!

Older products aren't compatible with newer OS. The best way you can play these games is probably by emulating a virtual PC. Try installing Windows 98 on a Windows Virtual PC.

Here's a link to a detailed manual: http://www.essjae.com/virtualization/WinVPC-InstallingWin98.pdf

If this didn't fix your issue please let me know. Hope this helped you!

Drakan order of the flame engine crashes when i start a new game. i have windows 7 but im running as admin and in compatability mode for win xp sp2. what else can i try?


You could try installing the DirectX version the game uses. (probably on disk)
You can also try to download this Windows Virtual PC.
Windows Virtual PC emulates Windows XP on your Windows 7 PC, so that you can run older applications that won't run on Windows 7 otherwise.
You will however need a processor capable of virtualisation.
Virtualisation check and download here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
After installing Windows XP Mode you will need to install the game again in this XP emulator, but after that it should run fine.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

Check your DVD discs have no scratches or damage. If this is not the case, get a replacement set from where you purchased it.

Marine sharpshooter 2 will not run on vista home prem even in compatibility mode for xp sp2


You can try running the program as administrator and if that doesn't work then the game is not compatible for the OS you are running.

My game is loaded but when i click on the icon. it will not play?


Ok, from what I read on Microsoft, this software is NOT compatible with Windows Vista 32-bit or 64-bit. That was found directly from:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=School%20Tycoon&v=Take-Two%20Interactive&uid=&pf=0&pi=5&c=PC%20Gaming&sc=Strategy&os=32-bit

However, checking the company's website, it mentions that some games that normally won't run in Windows Vista, can be ran in a "compatibility mode" which mimics Windows XP. Follow these steps and see if this corrects the problem:
  1. Right-click the shortcut for the game.
  2. Click the compatibility tab.
  3. Check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode".
  4. Select Windows XP SP2 (or Windows 98 if XP does not work) from the drop down menu.
  5. Click Apply
  6. Click OK
  7. Start the game
It should run in Windows XP SP2. If it doesn't you can try Windows 98 to be sure. If neither of these work, unfortunately, you may be unable to play this game.

Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia not working


a large number of older games do not work on vista, they are incompatible, you can either download the patch from the games site, which i see youve tried and it did not work, in this case, try to run the program in windows xp SP2 mode. to do this, fidn the application or executive file, it will have .exe at the end of the filename or will say application, then right click it, properties, compatibility, then check the box to run in compatibility mode for:, then choose for Windows XP (Service Pack 2), use those settings then try it again, if it still doesnt work then you simple can not use that game on vista. your last option you can try has a small risk of virus, only because it is user created, but seacrh the internet for a patch that allows it to work on vista. some people make their own patches to allow the program to work on vista.
