Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Are you getting an error message during installation? If so, could you please post the error?

This will help me determine exactly what needs to be done to get the game running.

Thank you,

Jennifer

Depending on the game it may not be compatible with windows visita.
Or your computer may not meet the basic requirements on ram, video card ect. if they dont meet the basic requirements we will be unable to help you; tell you have updated your computer.
if your unsure just go to netscape.com type in "windows vista""thenthenameofourgame".. use the " " in the search..
you will be able to find it its compatible or not.
(its not showing me what game your talking about, so i cant do this for u)

I will give you some of the basic driver/file that you will need.


i have vista system and - c033ec7.jpgDirectX End-User Runtime The Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime provides updates to 9.0c and previous versions of DirectX — the core Windows® technology that drives high-speed multimedia and games on the PC.

try downloading and installing both of these, most games require you have the newest versions. if your still having issues just simply comment on what game you have.

These are the basic run time files needed to run just about every single game. If it does not work, then again like i said above it may not be compatible with windows 7 and or your computer may not meet the minimal requirements on ram, processor speed, free space.

I wish you the best of luck
please rate me.

DOOM won't run in Vista ...what can I do also Duke, Hexen, etc.


Are you certain your DOOM game is compatible with your Vista Operating System? Vista comes in 32 bit and 64 bit versions. Software compatibility depends on the game being designed for the specific OS you have. If you're running 64 bit Vista, I'm guessing your game is designed for Windows XP or 32 bit Vista.

My games became in low speed but it has work good in win xp why


The reason your games run so much better on Windows XP vs. Windows Vista is because Windows Vista takes up more of your system resources....so your game has less resources to use , which makes it run slower.

To get your games running faster on Windows Vista your best bet would be to upgrade your RAM (Computer Memory). You can find out what type of RAM you need and purchase it here: http://www.upgradememory.com/configurator_1.cfm
