Vista is trick like that.

  1. Un-install it fully, then re-install it.
  2. But before you play it you have to right click on the shortcut and go to properties and click the button that tells it to run as if it is xp.
  3. Update the game, there should be a few of those.
Well and give yourself permission to play the game. Vista is bad at that.

You should be good. Let me know how it goes.

Rome Total War!‏


That is your problem. If the game is not compatible with Windows Vista, It won't play it, or play it normally. What I mean is that the game is pretty old (in date created), and the software used to create it was not meant for Vista. Because Vista came afterwards (I think). And Vista has to downgrade while running the game. But it could only downgrade so much. And when it downgrades, it's actually working harder to play the game than having a whole bunch of stuff open at the same time. Vista playes it, but only for a while, because it's not going to downgrade any more.

Hope this helps.

P.S. If you want to play the game, I recomend you get a computer with XP.

CivCity Rome shuts down windows on vista laptop


That's wierd... O.K. yeah, its probably the vista thing... Or it might be the download. When you downloaded the game you might of gotten a faulty copy i.e. the game file has a virus. If it is the "vista" thing, than download the game onto another computer that can play it. Like how you said the game would work fine on your old XP PC, than it sounds like that's the computer you have to use. My advice, keep looking for different downloads to get the game, and keep searching for patches to try and fix the problem, if all else fails buy the game or call tech support. Hope this helps

Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia not working


a large number of older games do not work on vista, they are incompatible, you can either download the patch from the games site, which i see youve tried and it did not work, in this case, try to run the program in windows xp SP2 mode. to do this, fidn the application or executive file, it will have .exe at the end of the filename or will say application, then right click it, properties, compatibility, then check the box to run in compatibility mode for:, then choose for Windows XP (Service Pack 2), use those settings then try it again, if it still doesnt work then you simple can not use that game on vista. your last option you can try has a small risk of virus, only because it is user created, but seacrh the internet for a patch that allows it to work on vista. some people make their own patches to allow the program to work on vista.
