Windows 7 is vastly different than windows 98. You should try compatability mode: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/make-older-programs-run#1TC=windows-7

Program trying to install has min req for windows 95/98. My computer running win 7. Is my computer too new to run old program?


Some programs have to be run after going into the programs section, identifying the specific program and click " run as Administrator". In most cases the Windows 7 will run anything for older Windows programs. Best Wishes

Still life will not run on windows 7/XP, will run on 98,but freezes up, troubleshooted compatibility and says missing dll


Here is the solution ..worked for me on windows 7 ultimate....


  • Right click the shortcut, properties and select the compatibility tab.
  • Change the program to run as WinNT 4.0 (not 98 or xp as these WON'T work).
  • Then check the box 'disable visual themes'.
  • (Unnecessary?) Check the box 'disable desktop composition' (to ward off evil spirits).
  • Lastly check the box to run this program as an admin (since windows still doesn't and probably never can have a decent security infrastructure that would allow you to run programs and games without running them with admin rights).
  • Apply and OK. Now you can run the game.

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.

More than likely it will not. What you can do is run a virtual PC. But it also depend on if the program will run in XP or win 2000. If you have a windows 95 or 98 disk and key, then you can install it with Virtual PC from Microsoft. Check it out here:

Probably need to reinstall the program...go to the installation file, RIGHT CLICK, and click TROUBLESHOOT COMPATIBILITY ...then you can have the option to run it in a mode for Windows 98/2000 if it has problems installing in Windows 7. If it installs in Windows 7, then there's no need for this.

I have windows mail and would like outlook express. Is there somewhere I can download it for free or do I have to buy a program?


If you have Windows Mail, you no doubt are running Windows Vista. Sorry, but Outlook Express is not supported in Vista. You are stuck with Windows Mail or a third-party mail client. FYI, I use Thunderbird and am quite satisfied. It works with Windows XP through Windows 7
