Alot of people have this problem on vista.. If it is a old game most likly it will not take it.. Best bet is to go round ur friends house who has xp and try to see if it works.

Hello, You can play the Lighthouse game on Vista / Seven by installing this software :http://www.squirtthecat.com/games/lighthouse/index.html
I used it but at one step of the game, the sounds bugs and I get an error.
So I used the DOSBOX version, installed with this link :http://www.sierrahelp.com/Files/NewInstallers/LighthouseForDOSBox.exe
I managed to install Lighthouse for Dosbox (I had the ISO, not the CD), chosing "local install", and mounting the iso on a F: virtual drive. Then I had to change a line in the dosbox.conf file :in [autoexec], old line : mount d -t cdrom -ioctl
new line : mount d F:\ -t cdrom -ioctl
Now I can play Lighthouse on Vista ok.
Good luck !
