I did a little web research on this game and unfortunately people are saying that this game (1993 version) does not work on XP. It will supposedly work on earlier versions of windows. Not sure why, but if you REALLY want to play the game, perhaps you could try a dual boot configuration on your current PC or use a separate machine with an older version of Windows. Sounds like a real pain in the but, BUT if you have the time and resources it might be worth it to you. Cheers!

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.

Topics Instant Play Piano will not load on Windows 7 and I no longer have computers with previous versions (XP, etc.). How can i get this to work on Windows 7 computer? Is there a fix or am I just out of...


You may try Topics' site, it is possible the either have a workaround or some kind of solution that would allow you to install it on a Windows 7 machine. Unfortunately, unless you have Windows 7 Professional or Business, you won't have the virtualization part of W 7 that allows you to run Windows XP within Windows 7. Sadly, a lot of good software became obsolete this way. Definitely had a few myself that got the axe on the move to 7.

I have windows xp and bought a pc rom at charity shop recently but computer will not play it, it says the sound software is not installed properly or disabled. what can I do?


Look at the system requirements on the CDROM - I've found that bargain CDs are often made for older versions of Windows (like Windows 98, etc...) and may not work on more modern versions of Windows.

If that's the case and you really want to run the software, you could install an older Windows on a separate computer, or else on your main computer but inside a virtual machine (sandbox) using software like VMware or VirtualBox.

Hello


See listen kid...firstly this explanation is long, but it has every thing you need to know in detail...ok now we'll start the explanation.....there are many game boy emulators which you can download
the best one for a game boy rom (the game files are called roms) is 'visualboy advance' known popularly as 'vba' for short(I think the latest version is 1.7.2 but any version will do). To play a rom(gameboy game file) double click the icon and a window might appear saying if you want to run the file, cilck run, then another window will appear, click file from the menu, then click open/open gameboy(same thing), then search for the rom file(gameboy games file) and double click.

I downloaded my vba from this site http://www.gameboy-advance-roms.com/gba_emulator.htm
just scroll down a bit and you'll find 2 purple gamboy advance type icon thingys....click the first link then on the next page click the link you see then just follow the rest and download according to your computer system(for windows chose any of the first three links)

This emulator can play gameboy black and white games(file extension is .gb) , gameboy colour games(file extension is .gbc), and gameboy advance games(file extension is .gba) only!! not gameboy NDS, gameboy NES, or gameboy 64, for these gameboy games you need other emulators go to this site for emulators http://www.emulator-zone.com BUT games also have to be downloaded and this site does not offer copyright roms(gameboy games files)

but dont lose hope...there are other sites from which you can freely download roms(gameboy games files) you can download the games then try and see if they work on your emulator. If they work properly, then I WOULD SUGGEST YOU TO PLEASE BUY THE ORIGINAL GAME CARTRIDGE because it is actually ILLEGAL TO JUST DOWNLOAD THE GAME FOR FREE (I suppose you've heard of the word piracy or pirated cds??)to search for a game just type the game name followed by roms for example, you want the pokemon emrald game right?? so just type "pokemon emerald roms" in the search bar of a search engine(such as google) you may get a huge list but be patient and search through the sites and you'll find it. heres a site from me to you (^_^) http://www.mxemu.com/romshare.php
If you cant find any rom that you want then search another site.

And make sure that your anti-virus program is good or your computer could get infected and break down(and that is not what you want to happen...trust me)

BUT AS I SAID EARLIER I WOULD SUGGEST YOU TO PLEASE BUY THE ORIGINAL GAME CARTRIDGE
Other than that....happy gaming!! Hope this solved your question(^_^)
