    I have windows vista. I installed and started but no characters are visible. I have tried changing the resolution and it did not help. I reinstalled it and still no luck. I cannot join a wagon nor pick people. It does not give me an option to join or choose a party.

You better dig that old Win98 machine out of the closet and fire it up. Oregon Trail doesn't want to install properly even when you run the install and set up in Compatibility mode (95 or 98). There is some issue with the version of DirectX it wants to use as well.

Oregon trail 5th edition vista


Hi,
Please check the compatibility of the game with Vista, and am not sure if this compatible at first place. Secondly you can run programs or games in XP mode by right clicking on the exe file of the game, goto properties and select compatibility, and then select to run in XP mode. Hope this helps

Cannot play Oregon Trail 3rd edition after install


Since you own a copy of the game, it is legal for you to go and download a No-CD crack. There should be many online, simply go to google and type in the Name of the game and No-CD crack. You should be able to find one, they also typically come with instructions on how to use them.

No visible characters on Oregon Trail 4


You could try to playing it compatibility mode. To do this, right-click the game, click Properties, then click the Compatibility tab and check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility for:", then choose what to run it under. This may or may not work, but hopefully it will.
