Find the program in the installation directory. It might be something like C:\Program Files\The Adventure Company\Microids\StillLife

Now right-click on Stilllife.exe, then click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, then select Windows 98/ME from the drop down menu. Hit OK and try to run the game again. It should start up just fine.

    Oh, and you might need to check "Disable Visual Themes" on the Compatibility screen as well.

Use the latest graphics driver to correct this issue. if your video card is onboard look for the model of the board in download the driver in the internet. Also if you have external video card try to re install the video card driver to fix the problem.

Note: If you continue to experience issues running the game with the latest graphics driver, try running the game with the -w switch which forces the game to run in a window.
