Can't play Big Fish games - though it says Vista Compatable

I'm getting the same problems - I have tried doing the compatable thing, even downloaded quicktime & flash - I'm still getting Macromedia Projector stopped responding. Only thing I can think to do is send the bill for the games to Microsoft - VISTA IS ****

Windows 7 will not read 95/98 version of scattergories wahat can I do


Wow, big OS problem here.

Windows 7 and Vista both have a serious problem playing games for the previous OS's (XP, ME, 2000, 98/95, 3.1). There are sometimes fixes that you can find on the web (download such and such driver or whatever.) but these only work about 15% of the time. Your best bet to get it to work is to find the .exe file that runs the game itself (right click on the shortcut and click "open file location"). When you find the .exe, right click on that and go to properties, then click the "compatability" tab. At this tab you can set the compatability settings to try and get the game to work. THIS DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK. If it doesn't, then most likely the game is simply too old to work on an OS as recent as windows 7. At that point your best bet is to hunt for a more recent version of the game you want to play (one that is compatable with win7)

I had my comp. fixed and they put windows vista home premium on here and i can't play my old games that need xp what can i do


You can do 2 things:
1 - try to run them in XP mode  - right click on its icon, then Properties, then Compatibility, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' and select Windows XP in the drop down menu and finally at the bottom of the compatibility tab, check 'Run this program as administrator'.
2 - install http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/ , configure it and in it install XP and all the soft with problems, starting with the games.

Not compatable with windows vista ?\the program doesn't start and gives a fatal error loading the opening book


PC (Windows 98 / Me / XP)

It was made before vista, however some programs do work for vista. This unfortunatly isn't one of the lucky ones.

However, you could try googling programs that emulate pre vista os. That or buy a small Harddrive (around 5-10gb cheap) so you could play older games. Good luck.

Not loading pc game


Is the game compatable with the program you are useing eg xp vista if not it will therefore not load or play? Check the back of the game and it should tell you what compatable systems you can use it with. If it is compatable with your system is your graphics card and sound card fast enough to play it? This can also affect the loading of a game, but normally it will load but not play if it was this.
