Can cyber chess download to windows 10?


Hi , do you mean that the subject program will not install using Windows 10 operating system ?
If so , try running the app's setup program located on the install disk media in compatibility mode for an earlier Windows version such as XP sp3
Compatibility mode enables a late version native Windows to run a program as per a user designated earlier version Windows and so extend support for obsolete apps that may not run using default settings

Navigate to the install disk's file directory using Windows Explorer (not the browser) , click on the folder to open and scroll down to the setup ( application) file . Right click to open the context menu and select properties > compatibility : check : run this program in compatibility mode and select from drop down list XP sp3 (my guess) or latest published supported Windows version for the subject app.
Check under privilege level : run this program as an administrator
click apply > ok then close and double click app's setup file to launch installation
Hopefully will now install and app will subsequently launch and process correctly.

Can not run on windows xp


Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. These programs may run poorly or not at all after you first upgrade to Windows XP. You may have heard this referred to as application compatibility issues or program compatibility issues.

You should run the Program Compatibility Wizard before you try other ways of updating your programs or drivers because it identifies compatibility fixes written specifically for Windows XP.

To run the Program Compatibility Wizard:

1.Click Start, and then click Help and Support.

2.Click Fixing a problem, and then click Application and software problems.

3.Under Fix a problem click Getting older programs to run on Windows XP.

4.Read the instructions and then click the Program Compatibility Wizard.

Update Your Program or Drivers

If your program does not run correctly after testing it with the Program Compatibility Wizard, check the Web site of the program's manufacturer to see if an update or patch is available. Also, go to Microsoft Update to see if a fix is available there.

If the program is a game that uses Microsoft DirectX®, make sure that you’re using the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. In addition, check the Web site of the manufacturer of your video card or sound card to see if newer drivers are available for either of them.

I hope this helped!
