It is most likely that you will have to update to Service Pack 2 in order to use this device.

Please confirm which version of Windows you are using by:

Press and Hold the "Windows Logo" Key + Press "Pause Break" Key.

If you do not have at least Service Pack 1 (Or SP1) then this is an issue. Please visit Windows Update site through the link provided in your Start Menu.

Let us know.

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.

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.

I have tried everything, how can i run this program? I have windows 7 64-bit and i need help!! Any solutions?


This is an older game so it may not be possible, but there are a couple things I would try. I have linked to sites with a full description of what is needed for each suggestion.
Compatibility Mode and Set CPU Affinity:
http://techpaul.wordpress.com/2009/06/28/compatibility-tricks-for-old-programs-new-machines/
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/316-compatibility-mode.html
patch your game:
http://www.fileplanet.com/124619/120000/fileinfo/Blitzkrieg-v1.2-Patch

A quick search found other users who got Blitzkrieg to work, but I found none that were using Win 7 64 bit. 64 bit versions of windows seem to have more compatibility issues with older software than the 32 bit.
Assuming you have tried all of this, you might consider a dual-boot option for Win XP, or get an older PC for this and any other Win XP games (that don't like Win 7). I have found several of these.

Unfortunately not all games will work with newer versions of Windows even with the compatibility modes. Atari Scrabble is an older game, and Atari stopped providing updates for the game some time ago. At this point your best bet is to find a version of Scrabble that is compatible with Windows 7. Microsoft has a Windows 7 Compatibility page on their site. The website address that is below lists another companies version of Scrabble that will work with Windows 7. Check out your local PC game retailers or the Internet to find and purchase a copy or search to see if there are other versions that will work with Windows 7.

If you re-installed Windows XP and you had Windows XP you did not install an older version - you just need Windows updates and most likely the sound card driver. Windows Update may eventually provide a driver, but I'd check the HP Website (HP owns Compaq) for drivers.
