Sounds like you require 128 bit encryption which are not supported under windows 98. you could try to go into explorer options and enable 128 bit under security tab.

microsoft doesnt support windows 98 anymore thus the reason why you can't get critical updates.

you should consider upgrading to xp

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.

I have the disk super scattergories and I want to load on windowsxp. It doesnt do anything


Microsoft Windows 98 was an operating system used on a majority of personal computers from 1998 to 2000. Because of this, there are a variety of games available to play on Windows 98, but are incompatible with later versions of Windows. If you have Windows XP or higher, you have access to a "Compatibility Mode" that allows your computer to play those games. Activating compatibility mode is a simple procedure.

Right-click the file that you usually click on when you are trying to start a game.

Select the "Properties" option in the drop-down menu.

Select the "Compatibility" tab, then check the "Windows 98" box.

Select the proper video mode for your game under "Display Settings."

Select the "Apply" button to save your settings, and select "OK."

Double-click on your game's file to begin playing the game.

When I try to play Axis and Allies cd-rom '98 it's like the screen is too small for the game because there is no buttons or anything that allows me to end my turn. My monitor is pretty big too.

My game is loaded but when i click on the icon. it will not play?


Ok, from what I read on Microsoft, this software is NOT compatible with Windows Vista 32-bit or 64-bit. That was found directly from:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=School%20Tycoon&v=Take-Two%20Interactive&uid=&pf=0&pi=5&c=PC%20Gaming&sc=Strategy&os=32-bit

However, checking the company's website, it mentions that some games that normally won't run in Windows Vista, can be ran in a "compatibility mode" which mimics Windows XP. Follow these steps and see if this corrects the problem:
  1. Right-click the shortcut for the game.
  2. Click the compatibility tab.
  3. Check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode".
  4. Select Windows XP SP2 (or Windows 98 if XP does not work) from the drop down menu.
  5. Click Apply
  6. Click OK
  7. Start the game
It should run in Windows XP SP2. If it doesn't you can try Windows 98 to be sure. If neither of these work, unfortunately, you may be unable to play this game.
