Cannot install CARD GAMES for Windows


It's probably an issue with Vista, right click on the icon, go to properties, run as administrator, and run in compatability mode for XP. If this doesn't fix the problem, try contacting the software manufacturer.

Dear Ceceboo,
It Seems that this Game is required higher graphics resolution and your existing system cannot support that , please read the minimum system requirement ,which is mentioned on Game CD.If your system fulfil these requirement then you can just download the directx and install it on your system but i repeat again ,you must read the system requirement first ,which is mentioned on your game CD.

Be Happy Always.

Windows live installation error.


Try right clicking the installation executable and choose Run As Administrator. By default, even an administrator account in Vista doesn't run with administrator privledges unless you elevate the action using user account controls.

When running most games in windows vista i get cant locate d3dx9.dll or d3dx9_32.dll error and cant load up any games


First check that you are running games in Administrator mode, or you always get similar problem.
If you run games as administrator and it still happens, then you need to reinstall direct x.
Download and install as administrator.
