I start my game and it tells me it needs 3 MB of virtual memory

I have Windows XP and I installed it in compatibility mode for Win98. So I know there shouldn't be a problem there, but how do I give it 3MB of virtual memory to run on?

I cannot install School house rock 3rd and 4th grade


There are workarounds besides using an older version of Windows (dual boot or a separate machine). This requires a licensed version of the older Windows OS. However, if you have the most common version of Windows 7 - Home Premium x64, you'll have to spend some money.

School House Rock - 3rd and 4th Grade works with Win98-XP. So, you can run a virtual computer with the older version of the Windows OS. Then install the School House Rock program into the virtual version of Windows as if it were the only copy of Windows. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, or upgrade to one of these versions, you can do this for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft (in order). Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. However, with those, you need to buy the program and have a licensed version of the Windows OS.

If you have the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can try the compatibility mode. (To check your version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the title of the OS ends with x64, you have the 64-bit version. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.) If you have the 32-bit, right click on the installer for the School House Rock software. Select Properties and then the Compatibility Tab. Check the Run this program in the compatibility mode and an older version of Windows. Then click Apply and then OK. Right click on the installer again and select Run As Administrator. You may need to repeat this for the program itself.

I hope this helps.

CANNOT PLAY BICYCLE PINOCHLE SINCE UPDATING COMPUTER PLAYED BICYCLE PINOCHLE ON WINDOWS 98, CANNOT PLAY ON WINDOWS 7


Unfortunately, due to changes in the OS and how programs run, a program written for Windows 98 will not run under Windows 7 directly.

Even the compatibility mode will probably not work unless your version of Bicycle Pinochle for Windows was written for XP as well as Windows 98. (The WinXP version would possibly run under the Windows 7 32-bit version; it won't work under the 64-bit OS. To find your version of Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the version title ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.)

You need to either upgrade your game software or get an older version of Windows running somehow. This could be a virtual computer (runs inside your Windows 7 computer if your hardware permits it), a second machine or a dual boot computer. For Windows 98, you will need a licensed version of the OS for any method. Check a nearby Windows User's Group to see if anyone there has the OS.

If your version of Pinochle could run under Windows XP and you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to them), you can run a virtual version of XP for free. In this case, download and install (in order) Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Then install the software in the XP computer as if it were the only computer running. (The compatibility mode didn't work inside XP mode for software written for Windows 2K so I doubt a Win98 program will work.)

An XP version of Bicycle Pinochle was offered by Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/games/bicycle/card/ . A Windows 7 version of Single Deck Pinochle is here: http://www.sac-irca.com/pino.html .

I wish that I had better news for you.

I'm trying to play rise and fall civilizations at war but i tried to play it after installing it and an alert came up saying there was compatibilty problem. please help


Depending on what operating system you have, it might legitimately be a compatibility problem with the OS. For example, if it's a 64 bit game and you're running it on a 32 bit platform (unlikely), or if the game was made for XP and you're playing it on Vista or 7.

One of the possible solutions (for the XP and Vista/7 problem, or basically any problem similar) is to right click on the .exe for the game and change it to compatibility mode. Go to My Computer>C:>Program Files (or Program Files (x86) in Vista/7)>Midway>Rise & Fall etc etc...It might not exactly be that directory, so in order to find it you can find its entry in the Start menu and right click on it, and go to properties. In the resulting menu you should see "Shortcut Target" or something to that effect that tells you the directory in which the game is located.

Open that directory and find the executable for the game. It should have a little mini picture of the game and should be named the same as the title of the game. Right click on it and go to Properties, then go to Compatibility. Check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode" and select the operating system in the drop down box for which the game was designed (You can find it on the back of the box). Now try running the game, and it should work in theory.

Unfortunately, I've had no luck with compatibility mode. Another option that might or might not work (depending on the requirements of the game) is to run it on a virtual machine. You can download VirtualBox as a virtual machine emulator, then create a virtual machine with the desired operating system. You have to have access to a licensed copy of the target OS, however, so if you don't have one this probably won't be the best solution for you. Also, virtual machines have a bad habit of not being compatible with certain graphics engines, etc, so it might not work anyway...Just a thought.

Though I've never used it, Windows 7 (if that is your operating system) users can download something called "Windows XP Mode" which lets you run programs which were designed with XP on your windows 7 platform. I believe it's some form of virtualization that's done, but as I've never used it, unfortunately I can't give you any helpful advice as to how to install, set up, and run it. You can most likely find anything/everything you need online. If you have any specific questions let me know and I can do some research and see what I can find out. Best of luck!

Right click on the executable file that starts the setup, typically setup.exe. Select Properties. Under Compatibility, set it to Windows XP SP3. If that doesn't work, it really won't work without you setting up a virtual machine and installing a copy of XP. If you're running Windows 7, you can download a Windows XP virtual machine to run. It's called XP Mode. Instructions can be found by searching for XP Mode in the Start menu's Help and Support.

It says it cant start or run do to incompatibility with 64 bit versions of windows....any way i can make my mission think game work? :/


The Learning Company Super Solver Mission T.H.I.N.K. was released in 1999 for Windows 3 and probably Windows 95/98. It could run under XP in the compatibility mode.

For a newer Windows OS, you need a workaround. You can use a a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software in the virtual computer using the compatibility mode and it should work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If your computer has a USB keyboard and mouse, you will need to use Win98 or newer OS. (However, the drivers may be an issue with Win98.)

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the compatibility tab, check the box for Run as compatible with an older version of Windows. Then launch the program.

I hope this helps.

I have Curse: The eye of Isis, and it dosnt work on my windows 7/ home premium. Is there any patch I can get?


DreamCatcher no longer lists this game at their site: http://www.dreamcatchergames.com/dci/pc.php . So there are no patches available in the support site.

Curse: The Eye of Isis was issued for XP and older versions of Windows. The installers and drivers are totally different with Windows 7. What version of Windows 7 Home Premium do you have? If you have the 32-bit version, the compatibility mode might work. (It is less likely to work with 64-bit Windows 7. However, there are no guarantees for either version.)

To try using the compatibility mode: right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Make sure the program is running in the compatibility mode if it does install by doing the right click and Properties step again.

A method that will work but will cost more money is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you buy an upgrade to Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the software from your CD in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

This game won't work on Windows 7 in any of the compatability modes. The only way to get this game to work is to run it in windows xp. The good news is that you can get free software from Oracle called virtualbox. Using virtualbox if you have a xp installation disk, you can create a virtual windows xp that runs within your windows 7. Stratego plays fine from within a virtual windows xp, provided that you play from the cd-disk not the virtual hard drive. Install the game normally in the virtual windows xp environment. After installation, to play the game, you must be in virtual windows xp, then double click the CD/DVD drive icon that looks like a bomb. If you try playing from any of the shortcut Stratego (also looks like bombs) launchers or the stratego.exe file installed on your virtual hard drive, the game will not work.Just go to My Computer in the virtual windows xp, and double click the cd/dvd bomb icon, and the game starts up fine.

Drakan order of the flame engine crashes when i start a new game. i have windows 7 but im running as admin and in compatability mode for win xp sp2. what else can i try?


You could try installing the DirectX version the game uses. (probably on disk)
You can also try to download this Windows Virtual PC.
Windows Virtual PC emulates Windows XP on your Windows 7 PC, so that you can run older applications that won't run on Windows 7 otherwise.
You will however need a processor capable of virtualisation.
Virtualisation check and download here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
After installing Windows XP Mode you will need to install the game again in this XP emulator, but after that it should run fine.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.
