Zoo tycoon can't load/save games


Unfortunately running an older game like this, you will have issues. Make sure you have the latest updates installed. If that doesn't resolve the issue you may not be able to save under windows 7. I would try compatibility for windows 98 before I give up all hope though.

Missing mss32.dll, im using windows 7 ultimate


MSS32.dll is used quote commonly in various games. A fair number of games rely on Windows having this dll file already installed to an indexed folder such as c:\windows or c:\windows\system32. If you are missing this file you should try reinstalling the game first as there are multiple versions of it - my online research shows 3 distinct versions for games like GTA3/4, Zoo Tycoon, and Counter Strike. It also appears it might be used for some graphics programs.
If reinstalling the program that is giving you this error you might try downloading a common version of the DLL file from http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?mss32. You should first try putting the file in the 2 folders mentioned above, then start putting it in the folder with the program that is claiming the file is missing (for instance: C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\<account name>\counter-strike source\bin).
I hope this helps!

Game will not open up


Zoo Tycoon has several problems with windows XP after SP2

Uninstall completely...

Reinstall... RESTART AFTER INSTALLING

If your DISC does not have a UBISOFT logo on it, download and install the patch from 

http://zootycoon.com/Downloads/patches.htm

If it DOES you do not need to download it as you already have it and installed it when you installed the game.

If the game does not run try rightclick>properties. Compatability tab, set compatability mode for: Windows 98.

My own copy of zoo tycoon had a weird glitch where you could only run it after you restarted the computer... and if you closed it when you were done playing you would have to restart it (the computer) to play again.

Program has stopped working


Right click on the game icon, select properties and select the compatibility tab. From there check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2). It might be good to also check "Disable visual themes" and "Disable desktop composition" Hope it helps.
