To be honest, there are only two options.

1. Go to the sierra online website and see if you can get a 64 bit version of the game

2. Get an entirely new OS of windows (a 32 bit version) and then try installing

I have here the 1996 Hoyle Children's Collection CD-ROM and would like to install it on my computer. However, when I insert the disk, no setup appears. How do I get to the setup?


If you right click on my computer than right click the drive that has the disk in it, there should be an option that says explore, select that and than look for the setup.exe file and double click that

I have windows 7 and trying to install my solitaire games cd. It saids it is not compatible, Is there any way to overside this?


A lot of your older games, especially those designed for Win 95, 98, 2000 will not work on current generations of Windows. What you could try to do is run emulation software to emulate one of these environments. The only drawback to this is that not only will you need the emulator (which is usually fairly cheap), you would also need a legitimate older copy of windows to install.

Your only other real option would be to browse ebay and maybe find an older comp that someones just looking to get rid of. Depending on your level of expertise setting up the rarely used emu software this may actually be a quicker and less stressful route.

Other than that, I can't really think of any other options you would have other than the Windows XP mode if your version of Win 7 is fortunate enough to be Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise. If you are lucky enough to have one of those than this link should put you in a good direction.

I am trying to install an old sierra hoyle solitaire from the CD, which loaded the game ok but when I open it it tells me that I require a 64 bit version. I have Windows 7. Is there a patch available?


you can try running it in compatibility mode, when installed right click the desktop icon, then go to bottom of list to properties, then on the thumb nails, look for compatibility look in the list for what ever program it was made for ie windows xp, windows 95, then try that there are more settings there which may help...hope this helps

Trying to install an older Hoyle Solitaire and Mahjong game


Once you insert the CD, go to Start -> My Computer, and Double Click on the Drive that has the Hoyle Picture. This will either start the Installer/Auto-run window, or it will open a series of files. Double click on Setup.exe if it does not autorun.
