I have DK "I Love Science", catalogue Number

I bought this cd-rom cheap and tried installing it on my windows 7 pc. I noticed it only says xp and vista on the specifications. This is what I did to get it working.
1. I went to the DK support webbsite at and registered with my name and email address. I don't know if that is essential as the file can be found here save it to your hard drive or desktop. Now windows 7 would not let me save it to the windows32 folder as I did not have permission even though I am showing as an 'sdministrator'. You need to do the following:- 1. go to the start icon on the bottom left of your screen, type cmd.exe and the file should appear on a list. Right click on the cmd.exe file and click on 'run as administrator' then a small 'dos based' window (for you old computer users) and type in the following at the 'command line':- net user administrator /active:yes
then log off, then log back on, you will have the choice of logging on as yourself or the administrator. Log on as the administrator, copy the wing32.dll file into the c:/windows/windows32 folder.

You will want to turn off the adminstrator account as it is too dangerous unless you are the only user of your machine. To turn off just go to the start > typr cmd.exe, right click on the cmd.exe file and 'run as administrator' again and type into the command line:- net user administrator /active:no
then log off and back in as yourself and it should work. Saved me $3.99 as I would have thrown the disc into the bin,

I am trying to run the "my amazing human body" cd-rom game. it says the sound software is not installed right or not working properly. we bought it new and worked once and now it wont. we have xp...

XP should be able to run it because they're backwards compatible with all Windows 98 software. Check your sound card in the Device Manager and verify the device and its' driver are installed. If not, re-install the driver for your sound card.

The patch for fixing the sound does not open

Most of the DK software was made for older computers that interacted with sound card hardware almost directly.

Todays sound cards are much more advanced.

DK also dont have much support for older oftware and even went third party for distribution etc.

If you have an older computer eg windows 98 tyhen it would probably run fine.

You could even try running it in compatibility mode under vista but I doubt it will fix your issue.
