    What operating system are you using?

    When you say "icon", are you referring to a shortcut located on the desktop, under the Quick Launch (area next to the Start menu), or under Start -> All Programs -> ? If you're clicking on a shortcut, the first thing you must do is make sure its pointing to a correct executable for the game. To do this:


    1. Right click on the shortcut and choose Properties.

    2. In the target box, it should show what its trying to open in quotation marks. Anything after the end quotation mark are attributes (for instance, some programs use a "-w" to start the program in a windowed mode).

    3. Try to follow the path in the target box and find where that file is located.
    If the shortcut is sound we can move on. However, to save time, I need to know something and I need the truth. I am not Interpol nor do I care about trying to turn anyone in, but I need to know if this is a pirated game? If it is pirated, it changes the entire method of assisting you with this problem.

    What game is it and does it produce an error when you open it? Also, after you run it, check and see if the executable it runs is located in your Task Manager under the Processes tab.

Ok, from what I read on Microsoft, this software is NOT compatible with Windows Vista 32-bit or 64-bit. That was found directly from:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=School%20Tycoon&v=Take-Two%20Interactive&uid=&pf=0&pi=5&c=PC%20Gaming&sc=Strategy&os=32-bit

However, checking the company's website, it mentions that some games that normally won't run in Windows Vista, can be ran in a "compatibility mode" which mimics Windows XP. Follow these steps and see if this corrects the problem:

  1. Right-click the shortcut for the game.
  2. Click the compatibility tab.
  3. Check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode".
  4. Select Windows XP SP2 (or Windows 98 if XP does not work) from the drop down menu.
  5. Click Apply
  6. Click OK
  7. Start the game
It should run in Windows XP SP2. If it doesn't you can try Windows 98 to be sure. If neither of these work, unfortunately, you may be unable to play this game.

Where can I download a patch for starwars battle front II that allows me to play it on a vista computer.


There is no patch, but supposedly this is the process for getting the game to work in Vista:

Many Vista users including myself have claimed Battlefront II won't work in Microsoft's latest operating system by a year, Vista. The alleged problem was that when attempting to play any game (load a map), whether online or single player or compaign, the map wouldn't even load- the game would immediately stop and "crash" to the desktop (meaning the game just closed). But the Menus work fine in Battlefront II, so why can't any games, meaning maps, load?

People have found some solutions. Some people say that disabling sound within the game solves the loading issue, which it does, BUT all future gameplay is without sound. I've found a solution to the problem, at least for some Vista users who may find themselves lucky as I did.

Here's my solution. Keep in mind this is for Windows Vista users ONLY:

Go to START,
then click on CONTROL PANEL.

Be sure you aren't under "classic view" for the control panel. You know if you are not in classic view if you see categories such as "System Maintainence" and "Security." If you haven't tampered with the settings, then your most likely not in the classic view.

Anyway, then click on HARDWARE AND SOUND,
and then click SOUND.
A window will pop up.
Navigate to the RECORDING tab in the top,
then RIGHT CLICK on some open white space
and select "Show Disabled Devices."
Hopefully, if you are still in the RECORDING tab,
a new icon will appear called "STEREO MIX."
RIGHT CLICK on the SETEREO MIX icon and select "Enable."

And wippity bang! Hopefully, this guide was of some help to other once-hopeless Vista users. Happy playing, and may the force be with you all!
