When i try to run the disk it tells me that I need 31M of memory to play. how do i fix this?


Hello, this is happening because the game is a bit old and can't report your memory correctly. To fix this you have to run the game in compatibility mode, follow these steps:

1. right-click on the games shortcut and choose 'open file location'
2. find the game's executable file, right-click on it and select properties
3. click the "compatibility" tab
4. check the box "run this program in compatibility mode" and choose "windows 98/Me" or "windows
95". Apply settings.
5. Have fun playing

Thanks for using FixYa

First I downloaded IGI 2 from torrentz.after i installed IGI 2 and when i trying to play they ask please insert disk 1 select ok and restart application.this is a downloaded game. therefore i dont have...


This is because the game has not been cracked. Usually in the torrent file there should be a crack for the game. You have to run this crack to enable you play the game. Check the downloaded folder and there should be a folder or an executable file there which can be used to crack it. Take a look at it and run this file. After running this file it should work properly without asking for any disc.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I just bought it for my son. We have done the initial set-up and we inserted the game disc but it doesn't play?


Hi..

To play a game on PC, you need to pass few bunch marks.

  1. The Game should be Properly installed and registered.
    If the Game is not installed into Computer yet, Please insert the Game Disc. There will a setup file (Installer) to install the game. Many commercial games requires registration before we could play the game.

  2. Your PC must meet the hardware resource requirements for the Game.
    Many Games are Resource intensive. Many need extra hardware resources like a Good Graphics card, Physical Memory (RAM) etc.
    Many games will specify their minimum hardware configuration required to play the game smoothly, on their Disc Packs.

  3. Your Game and Operating System should be Authentic
    If your game disc is not authentic or legal, Operating System will prevent the game from running. The same will do for the Operating Systems also.
    So if you got the Disc illegally, you may need to crack or patch it run.

  4. Auto running Feature should be turned on.
    Many Operating Systems features Auto Running the Disc. That is, if you put the disc on computer, it will run automatically without any user interactions. If your Current Operating System does not have Auto Running Feature (Many new Operating Systems have this feature and its set to On by default) or its set to disabled mode, you can browse the disc and run it manually.
    You can find the executables in the Disc to run the game. Usual Autorun executables have name one of Installer, Autorun, setup.

  5. Your Anti-virus may interrupt the game.
    If you have an anti-virus software, then it may interact with the game's normal play and stop it from playing. This is due to the fact that, many Anti-virus Software mistakenly think the game as a virus and stop it from running.
    So if you have an anti-virus software, please set it to Game Mode or Disabled Mode

The game could not be started


Glad to help YOU!

Please check if the game it was properly installed. Sometimes appears an incompatibility between the operating system and the game drivers/executable files.
It means:
1. or your game requirements are not meeting your system capabilities (not enough RAM, too tight space on disk, etc.)
2. or the game is not designed for your system (game runs on 2-bit and you have a system running on 64-bit/or viceversa)
3. or the game was not correctly installed because you had a corrupted installer (this case try to obtain another installer from a different source for the game).

My best wishes!

When ever i'm playing online Axis and allies (1998 game for pc) and I click begin, It crashes and an error report comes up. It's really annoying, I don't know if anyone could help with this, but if you...


Try finding the executable--the file that actually runs when you double-click the desktop shortcut--and set it to run in compatibility mode. Assuming you have a newer version of Windows than Win98, you'll need to do this, by doing the following:
  1. Right-click on your desktop shortcut, then click 'Open File Location' (in Vista it will probably be the 2nd option from the top of the list)
  2. Windows will find and open the folder containing the actual file that runs when you want to play the game, highlight that file for you as well. Don't click anywhere else, you're focusing in on the actual program, so do the next step.
  3. Right-click on that executable, then click 'Properties' at the bottom of this list.
  4. Another window with the Properties of the game's executable will pop up. Click on the tab labelled 'Compatibility' (it should be the 2nd tab from the left).
  5. Click a check-mark into the very top box, labelled 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:
  6. then select 'Windows 98 / Windows ME' from the pull-down menu just below that.
  7. You should also go ahead and click 'Run this program as Administrator' at the bottom of the same popup window.
  8. Then, click 'OK', and click out of all windows until you're back at your desktop.
  9. Try your program again by double-clicking the same old icon you've always used to get it going before.
See if that helps. If not, it might help you to uninstall your game altogether and then reinstall it in a similar fashion, by finding the 'executable' that actually installs it within its installation CD (instead of letting it auto-start, click out of that and Explore the CD), and doing the exact same thing (setting all installer files to run in 'compatibility mode' for the older Windows 98 OS).
At the end of the installation, you may still have to perform the same procedure in the bullets above to ensure that all files installed are running compatibility mode themselves.
It's sometimes tedious, but there are countless older games, programs, and drivers you can get to run this way.

HOW TO INSTALL APPLIATION IN SAMSUNG S3310 METRO


In Samsung s3310 mobile,installing games is itself a big task and you did that.
The reason is only games folder can run Java executable files(.jar) files.When we move Java executable files(.jar) to application folder,it cannot execute the .jar file.Therefore the applications like call tracer which runs in background mode could be installed but cannot run in s3310.
only games and applications like dictionary(which does not need background running mode) can run in Samsung s3310 in games folder.

My computer won't let me download any software. It downloads and then asks me to run it, and I do. Then nothing ever comes up and when i look for the download set up file, it is nowhere to be found??...


If you select 'run' when downloading an executable file (a software installation, for example) the download will be written to a temporary file and then the file will be executed. This means that the installation should have taken place, but the downloaded file is not easily identified and found.

If you are having problems installing some downloaded software you should select 'save as' instead of 'run' when doing the download, and save the file to a known location, e.g. create a folder called 'downloads' in your My Documents folder, or simply save the file to Desktop.

Once you have the downloaded file save you can normally execute it (run installation) by double clicking it.

We have loaded Age of Mythology on our computer. But our computer will only let users with admin rights run it. How do we allow other users to run the Program.


From an admin account.

Go to the directory where you installed AOM, find the executable file that starts the game. More than likely a derivative of the name of the game followed by exe (Example: AOM.exe)

Right click on the file and select properties.
This will bring up a dialog box that has many options.
The one we are concerned with is "Run as administrator" put a check mark in this box and close the dialog box.

The game is now set to run in administrator mode NO matter WHAT the user level is that executes it.

Hope this helps,
Dave

The game was released in 1998, and was developed for Windows 95/98.

To make the game run on Windows XP, try the compatibility for the installation and after it is installed use the same steps for making the game executable file compatible.

Note: Some game ".exe" file (executable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows 98/ Windows Me" and then click on "Apply". (You can also try "Windows 95")

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

After the game is successfully installed right click on the game shortcut or the game ".exe" in the root folder of the game and click and click on "Properties".

In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows 98/ Windows Me" and then click on "Apply". (Again, you can also try "Windows 95")

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

There are lot of files that need to be changed in order to get full functionality and to communicate with operating system and the hardware, hence there is no guarantee that the game might run even in cases where you will successfully install an older version of the game with the above mentioned steps.
