Right click the icon and click "find target". Is something there? What is the game and what is the Operating system?

I don't know how to download OR if it's safe. I just want to play Spider Solitaire and have a desktop icon for Spider Solitare


You are correct to have concerns about safety with downloads. There are many sites now that bundle unwanted junk or even malware with the app you want.

I assume you are running Windows, so the best place to get SS is from Microsoft, here

Follow the links, 'Get the game' then 'Install' and subsequent instructions and you should have a desktop icon.

I have Mahjongg variety pack. I was using windows xp. I now have Vista. It will not play on vista.


I just installed it tonight. (Yes, I have Vista.) Two of the games work great. All I did was right click the icon that was on my desktop (I made copies and put them on my desktop - the program didn't do this), clicked on properties, clicked on the tab called "compatibility", checked the box that said, "Run this program in compatibility mode for", and from the dropdown list, I chose Windows 98/Windows Me. Also, I had to temporarily disable Avast, and turn off "real time protection" on Microsoft Security Essential (I turned it back on after the games were installed.).

The games that work for me are Mahjongg Empire and Mahjongg Master 3. Rahjongg the Curse of Ra is being obnoxious (I came on here to find a solution) and the other one won't do anything, not even install. Anyway, I hope this helps you get at least the first two games installed.

I have windows 7 installed on my pc.i installed cossacks II napoleonic wars properly,and when i try to start the game,i get information that the game can run only on older versions on windows (95,98 XP )....


Well, try this, we call this "compatibility" mode, most programs can be run on windows 7 with this trick.
I assume your Cossacks II Napoleonic Wars icon is on the Desktop,
Right-click the Icon (game's icon), select "Properties" and click "Compatibility" tab, select "Run this program in compatibility mode for" click the "Windows 95..." and select "Windows Xp (Service pack 2)", click "Apply" > "Ok" and try again.

If even after doing this, the game can't be played, then there's no option. The fact is that, this game is made to run on system with Windows xp and earlier version, but somehow if fortunate, it's possible, not will all software, some may work, some may not.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot install CARD GAMES for Windows


It's probably an issue with Vista, right click on the icon, go to properties, run as administrator, and run in compatability mode for XP. If this doesn't fix the problem, try contacting the software manufacturer.

We have a windows vista computer and a game which we havent installed yet because we were wondering if it might damage the game or computer because on the minimum requirments it says that the computer must...


the worst that could happen is that the computer may not run the program. try installing the game, your cd (assuming that's the source of the setup files for the game) should not be affected.

after you install the program try to run it as usual by double clicking the icon to run the program if it doesn't run as expected try this.
1. right click the icon you use to run the game.
2. select properties
3. select the compatibility tab and select an appropiate mode. (ex. windows xp service pack 2)

not completely sure but you may also want to try to run the installation/setup program by changing the compatibility mode so you may be able to trick the program into believing the app/game is being installed on a windows xp service pack 2 system increasing your chances to have the installation running properly.
