Question about EA Sports Spore Creature Creator for Windows

1 Answer

Windows 95 I SPY wont run on Windows XP

''This program requires 3MG of free virtual memory to run'' is the error message I get when I try to launch my Scholastic ''I SPY'' game.

When I searched the topic, simliar ones came up, but for ''I SPY Junoir'' and ''I SPY Spooky Mansion'' I tried the suggestions from both of them, but neither helped :(

We JUST finished whiping our computer entirely and so it's got a crud load of space, so I cant find out what the issue is.


Could someone please help me?

Try this

Right click rather than left click whatever it is that you put the cursor on to try to run the "I Spy" program.
Click properties (by the bottom of the popup window)
Click the compatibility tab on the new popup and then select Windows 98.
Then try running the program by right clicking.

    Are you running XP ?

    Do you know how much virtual memory you are running with ?

  • Terry Vaughan Jun 05, 2009

    I just noticed that you said Windows 95.

    Did you try to run in Windows 95 compatability mode ?

    I gave you directions for Windows 98 compatability mode.

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.

Hi ,
This product is not compatible with Windows 7 but it should run under Windows XP . If you are running under XP , I suggest you delete the program , reboot your machine and reinstall the program under Windows XP . If it still fails , you could need to reinstall Win XP or use the recovery disc . Launch the disc , select " install a new version of XP " and choose " repair " when you'll be asked to .
Make first sure you have installed SP3 and tested your program with XP fully updated .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

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.

I need to increase virtual memory


I don't wish to sound rude but if you don't know how to do this, you prolly should just let windows continue managing it. A few wrong keystrokes can have major repurcussions

Problem running program


This is a common problem in older software. The reason is it was written expecting a small MAXIMUM virtual memory size. When your VM is SO MUCH greater, the number wraps (internally) to a negative value. Thus it thinks you do not have enough. Additionally, Midisaurus is not certified to run on XP. See this entry in the FAQ for Midisaurus and MidiShare: http://www.town4kids.com/us_ecom/support/midi_q&a.htm#a16

Running program


Take a look at the comments on this product at Amazon.com. Despite what it may say on the box, no one with XP was able to get it to work. http://www.amazon.com/Burpee-Garden-Designer-Jewel-Case/dp/B00005B2PA This is an old program, and what's likely happening is you have TOO much virtual memory. What I mean by that is that the program was written so long ago they expect a maximum size of virtual memory. When your number exceeds that, in a computer program, frequently the number wraps around to zero and goes negative (internal to the program). This is likely the issue. Sorry, but the program is too old and unstable to run successfully on XP.
