Trying to install an older Hoyle Solitaire and Mahjong game

I have the Hoyle Solitaire and Mahjong Tiles by Sierra attractions. I use to play it all the time and now with my computer I have windows XP and I can't get it to install. On the instructions it has for Windows 95/98. I thought I should be able to use anything older than XP on up to XP. Am I wrong about this? I like this Mahjong game the best so far and I'm frustrated that I can't play it.

I try to install it from add / remove programs, from run and typing in D:/SETUP like it says and from My Computer. I don't know any other way to try loading it.

Help please.....

Once you insert the CD, go to Start -> My Computer, and Double Click on the Drive that has the Hoyle Picture. This will either start the Installer/Auto-run window, or it will open a series of files. Double click on Setup.exe if it does not autorun.

In a game of Mahjong is it better to discard tiles in front of you or mix them with the other players' discarded tiles?


There are different opinions about where you should place your Mahjong discarded tiles, whether in front of your other tiles or in the middle of the table, mixed with the other players' discarded tiles.
I personally believe that placing them in front of each player makes the game easier and more enjoyable. Because everyone has his or her own discarded tiles in front of them, the other players can see what each person has discarded and what not. Therefore, according to which suits are missing from the discarded piles, it is easier to understand which tiles each person is hoping to use to create their Mahjong and therefore it's possible to decide if it's a good idea to discard a specific tile that might allow a different player to win.

I have windows 7 and trying to install my solitaire games cd. It saids it is not compatible, Is there any way to overside this?


A lot of your older games, especially those designed for Win 95, 98, 2000 will not work on current generations of Windows. What you could try to do is run emulation software to emulate one of these environments. The only drawback to this is that not only will you need the emulator (which is usually fairly cheap), you would also need a legitimate older copy of windows to install.

Your only other real option would be to browse ebay and maybe find an older comp that someones just looking to get rid of. Depending on your level of expertise setting up the rarely used emu software this may actually be a quicker and less stressful route.

Other than that, I can't really think of any other options you would have other than the Windows XP mode if your version of Win 7 is fortunate enough to be Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise. If you are lucky enough to have one of those than this link should put you in a good direction.

I am trying to install an old sierra hoyle solitaire from the CD, which loaded the game ok but when I open it it tells me that I require a 64 bit version. I have Windows 7. Is there a patch available?


you can try running it in compatibility mode, when installed right click the desktop icon, then go to bottom of list to properties, then on the thumb nails, look for compatibility look in the list for what ever program it was made for ie windows xp, windows 95, then try that there are more settings there which may help...hope this helps
