I have windows 7 installed on my pc.i installed cossacks II napoleonic wars properly,and when i try to start the game,i get information that the game can run only on older versions on windows (95,98 XP )....

Well, try this, we call this "compatibility" mode, most programs can be run on windows 7 with this trick.
I assume your Cossacks II Napoleonic Wars icon is on the Desktop,
Right-click the Icon (game's icon), select "Properties" and click "Compatibility" tab, select "Run this program in compatibility mode for" click the "Windows 95..." and select "Windows Xp (Service pack 2)", click "Apply" > "Ok" and try again.

If even after doing this, the game can't be played, then there's no option. The fact is that, this game is made to run on system with Windows xp and earlier version, but somehow if fortunate, it's possible, not will all software, some may work, some may not.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i get Act of War high Treason to work on windows 7 64bit?

THIS IS THE FIX for Act of War and High-Treason

look no further, here is the solution for the memory and video memory crash. You need to go to your game location:
1- For steam users its Program Files (x86) >> Steam >> steamapps >> common >> Act of War High treason (else its the normal
Program Files (x86) >> Atari >> Act of War High treason and right click on ActofWar_HighTreason.exe and put the compatibility mode on one of the Vista.

2- Download put that .dll file in same location. Remmember to store this file for later use, since we dont know how long the link will be up and spread the massage since there are many who has trubble running this game.

Works at least on W7 Ultimate x64 sp1

I start LEGO Star Wars but then says lego starwars stop wrking

LEGO Star Wars II for PC requires the following minimum system requirements:

Operating System
Required: Windows 2000, XP, or Vista

Required: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible computer

Required: Intel P3 1.0 GHz or AMD Athlon 1000 MHz
Recommended: Intel P4 2.0 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 2400+

Required: 256 MB RAM
Recommended: 512 MB RAM

Graphics Card
Required: 64 MB 3D Graphics card with Vertex and Pixel Shader (VS/PS) Capability
Recommended: 128 MB 3D Graphics card with Vertex and Pixel Shader (VS/PS) Capability

Sound Card
Required: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible Audio Device

Required: 8X Speed CD-ROM drive
Recommended: 16X Speed CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive

Input Device
Required: Keyboard and mouse. Gamepad and joystick supported
Recommended: Gamepad

Microsoft DirectX 9.0c (April 2006 Edition) is included on this CD. You will be prompted to install DirectX during the installation of this game if this or a more recent version is not already properly installed on your system.
NOTE: DirectX may require the "latest" updates for your operating system. This may also include the latest drivers for your motherboard, sound, and video hardware.

Installation: Installation requires 3.5 GB of free hard drive space. We recommend that you have an additional 500 MB of free space available after installing the game for the Windows swap/page file.

You must have local Administrator rights to properly install LEGO Star Wars II and update Dire

No other programs should be running in the background.
System resources should be at least 85% free.

To check this:
Press CTRL-ALT-DEL once, choose Task Manager, choose the Performance tab, and check CPU Usage.
There should be at least 500 MB of free hard disk space after installation.

If you experience performance issues when running LEGO Star Wars II, we recommend that adjust the following options in the Video Options menu:

Lower the video resolution.
Set Antialias to Off
If this option is set to Antialias from Control Panel, you will need to set your Antialiasing Setting to Application-Controlled in the Windows Display Properties for your specific graphics card.
Disable Bloom Effect.

Please close all other programs before running LEGO Star Wars II. This includes virus-scanning, word processing, and Internet programs. Simply disabling these programs will not always help, as the programs still use resources that are needed to run LEGO Star Wars II. If you experience problems completely closing programs that are running, consult the documentation for those individual programs. This is a common problem when trying to completely disable virus-scanning software.

PC game Jericho wont run

YES Vista is the problem. It won't run many older programs for Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT and so on. If you want something that does go to and install that instead.
