Older programs will sometimes not work with Vista. This is likely the reason that Lego Island 2 (a 2001 game) will work a opposed to Lego Island (a 1997 game). There are a few things that you can try, though:

  1. Right click the 'play game' icon and select 'Properties'
  2. Click the 'Compatibility' tab at the top of the window
  3. Click the 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' box and select Windows XP or Windows 98/Window ME (you can try another later if one doesn't work)
  4. Make sure that the 'Run this program as an administrator' box is selected.
  5. Click 'OK' and close the window
Give the icon the good ol' double click and see if she works. There's no guarantees that this will work with Vista since it is an older program, but this is where I would start.

I hope this helps!

The other way which worked for me is to copy d3drm.dll from your main cd to the install folder, probably C:/Program Files/Lego Island and it might be Program Files(X86). :)

    many people think compatibility is the answer, but this will make the game boot but for no eoors id recommend doing the compatability also

I lost the code on the back of the case


If you've lost the activation code, the only legal way to get a new one is to contact Lego support.  If you still have the original copy of the disk and maybe even an instruction manual (just something to prove ownership), then you shouldn't have a problem.
However, if you do not have the original disk, then there is really no legal way to present your case to Lego.  They will just assume you burned a copy.

Hi,
Although the game wasn't designed to run on Vista, it still can! Here are some instructions to help you. This might help very well.

1. Install LEGO Star Wars.

2. When it's installed, right click on the LEGO Star Wars icon.

3. Click Properties.

4. Click the Compatibility tab.

5. Tick the box saying Run this program in compatibility mode for...

6. Click the drop-down menu under the sentence and click Windows XP (Service Pack 2)

7. Click Apply then OK.

8. Right click on the LEGO Star Wars icon again and click Run as an administrator.

NOTE: If you are using a Standard User Account, then you will need an administrator's password to play. After the password has been put in, the game should start after a few seconds.

Hope this Helped!

I PURCHASED LEGO ISLAND AND TRIED TO INSTALL IT ON MY COMPUTER WHICH HAS VISTA AND IT IS NOT WORKING. I ALSO CAN'T UNINSTALL WHAT DID GO ON.


what you need to do is run the programme in compatability mode for XP service pack 2, you can do this by right clicking on the desktop icon and choose the compatibility tab, if the game still won't work you may have to start the machine in safe mode (press F8 on boot up) to remove the programme

good luck
