Question about Sierra Sports PGA Championship Golf for Windows
Will not execute
Im no games expert im afraid,but it sounds like its trying to install to the wrong location.
Check it is installing to something like "C:\Program Files\tigerwoods"
What is your operating system,ie Vista/XP etc
From what i can see,these are old games and may not run on Vista (assuming you are using Vista) .
But may run in compatibility mode ;
To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon for the program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.
If Vista,also right click the .exe and run as administrator.

In many cases this error has been generated by faulty RAM memory. So if you have just upgraded your computer with some new memory and you started getting this error then would remove them and see if the error goes away. If it does then send the memory back and get a refund!
In Windows XP Service Pack 2 Microsoft introduced Data execution prevention (DEP), a set of hardware and software technologies that perform additional checks on memory to help protect against malicious code exploits. In Windows XP SP2, DEP is enforced by both hardware and software.
Some software/application behaviours are incompatible with DEP - data execution prevention.
This option is only available on 32-bit versions of Windows when running on processors supporting no-execute protection. It enables no-execute protection (also known as Data Execution Protection - DEP), which results in the Memory Manager marking pages containing data as no-execute so that they cannot be executed as code. This can be useful for preventing malicious code from exploiting buffer overflow bugs with unexpected program input in order to execute arbitrary code. No-execute protection is always enabled on 64-bit versions of Windows on processors that support no-execute protection.
There are several options you can specify with this switch:
/NOEXECUTE=OPTIN Enables DEP for core system images and those specified in the DEP configuration dialog.
/NOEXECUTE=OPTOUT Enables DEP for all images except those specified in the DEP configuration dialog.
/NOEXECUTE=ALWAYSON Enables DEP on all images.
/NOEXECUTE=ALWAYSOFF Disables DEP. (This setting doesn't provide any DEP coverage for any part of the system, regardless of hardware DEP support. The processor doesn't run in Physical Address Extension (PAE) mode unless the /PAE option is present in the boot.ini file.)
This error also seen when people have updated drivers for their graphics card. If this happens just roll back your drivers. Also keep an eye on the vendors website to see if they have an update/patch available or coming soon.
