hi Jaquelynrul,
Since this game was made a while back there may be some compatibility issues with it running on Windows 7.
To fix this right click on the icon that was made when you installed the game. Click on Properties. Click on Compatibility. Check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" In the dropdown below, select Windows XP SP2. Click apply. Run the game.
Cheers, Garbanian

How to Connect a Windows 7 Computer to a Windows XP


Even though Windows XP and 7 are different versions of Windows, you can still connect a computer running Windows 7 to an XP computer using Remote Desktop Connection. Remote Desktop Connection is a utility in Windows that allows you to log in to a remote computer directly from your computer's desktop. However, before you can use the utility on your Windows 7 computer, you must enable it on the Windows XP computer. To connect to the Windows XP computer, you also need to know the XP computer's name.

Instructions

Enable Remote Desktop on the Windows XP Computer
  1. Click "Start" on the Windows XP computer, and then right-click "My Computer."
  2. Click "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
  3. Click the "Remote" tab, and then click the "Allow Users to Connect Remotely to This Computer" check box.
  4. Click "OK" to confirm the change when prompted on the pop-up window. Click "OK" on the open windows to close them.

Connect to the Windows XP Computer
  1. Click "Start" on the Windows 7 computer, and then type "Remote Desktop Connection" in the search box. Press "Enter."
  2. Click "Remote Desktop Connection" from the results list.
  3. Type the name of the XP computer in the "Computer" box, and then click "Connect" to connect to the XP computer.

It sounds like some other program or process running in the back ground is inturupted the install progress each time. Close all of your running programs like msn mircosoft office programs ect. and try again and let me know if it's fixed it.

After that, yes, there is an XP Mode available for free download to users of W7 Pro, Ultimate or Enterprise and would run your previous more "friendly" version.

I have secret agent barbie, and i want to install it on my computer. I have the Windows 7 operating system, and i can't install it. I saw on the system requirements it said the newest one was Windows 2000....


Alot of older games won't work on new operating systems without getting some extra files from the net. You CAN try adjusting the compatibility of the game and see if that works. When you insert the disc, cancel out of the auto run and go to your my computer. Explore the disc and find the setup.exe file. Right click on this and click on properties. Find the "Compatibility" tab and try adjusting that down to Win XP. If that doesn't work then the game itself might not be able to run on windows 7, which is cruddy, but is the case in some older games :(

Windows 7 incompatibility


If you have Windows 7 Ultimate, it comes with a Windows XP mode that allows you to emulate windows xp. If you haven't already tried right clicking the exe or shortcut and clicking the compatibility tab and setting it to windows xp service pack 2 (not 3 for some strange reasons)
