Question about Sega Sonic & Knuckles Collection for Windows

1 Answer

Win 16 subsystem has become unstable?

I was digging through my house when I came upon "sonic & knuckles collection" for windows 95 + 98. When I put it in my XP, it worked fine until I ran the installer, because then it froze up and said that the "16 bit oporation had timed out, the win 16 subsystem may be unstable" I have looked all over and I can't find any thing. Do you have any idea what this means?

Some incompatibility. Try right clicking on the installer EXE and changing options in the "compatibility mode" tab.

Try to run as Windows 95, Windows 98, disable visual themes, advanced text support, run it on 256 colors... try everything - it could work. But since it's something made for an OS developed more than 10 years ago, it will be hard to get it working.

If it still won't install, then your best hope is to install a Virtual Machine software (like VMWare) and install a copy of Windows 9X on it, so you can run the game virtualized.

USB Mouse works, keyboard does not


You will need to update the drivers on the computer for the docking station. It will be the windows seven drivers or lack of them that is causing a failure to remap the usb ports that the wireless dongle is plugged into.

Age of sail 2 failz on vista runs on weaker XP computer


If you are running Vista, before you consider downgrading to XP, find your privateer.exe file and right click it. Once the page is displayed, left click on compatibility. Then check the Run this program in compatability with... Click the button below and scroll until you find XP. Click it and then click Apply to save it. Then click ok. That should enable you to run the game on Vista. If it doesn't something is wrong with your operating system, not the computer.

The driver is not found


Have you recently run any Windows updates?

I would try uninstalling and re-installing the drivers for the cd rom and/or Sonic first. If that doesn't resolve the issue, you could attempt a system restore to a date when the program was working.

Computer shut off


you have a hardware conflict or a bad power supply/MB. or a bad video card/driver. or a bad RAM chip. uninstall everything but one chip, one HDD and CDROM, and one video card. install the OS rom there... then add items until it becomes unstable. the last thing you installed is the bad boy.

XP does not detect player


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

T.sonic cannot operate after it was formatted in Windows
Formatting T.sonic using the “Quick Format” or “Full Format” option in Windows destroys the
default format of the T.sonic. To retrieve the default format, you must link to
