Try to Enable Application Compatibility-Mode for the game. right click your game executeable file then properties Compatibility, put a x on the box and select xp. apply and ok. if that doesnt solve the problem try another windows version from the list.

Try running in compatibility mode right click on the shortcut or exe file go down and select properties and then the compatibility tab and run in windows xp service pack 3. This should get the program to run. Hope it helps Kidromulous

We have Rrollercoaster Tycoon, School Tycoon, and various Reader Rabbit games that will not work since we changed computers, and went from Winodws XP to Windows 7. Is ther a fix that you can provide so we...


There are no fix to that the windows 7 has a compatibility issue in software,applications or game. I think your game is to old to run on windows 7. The windows 7 compatible only to new games and not very old games.

It could just be that the graphics set in your PC is just not capable of producing the resolutions/operations required for the game as they are set or you maybe need an updated graphics driver. Try reducing the resolution settings in the game(s) if you can. Also make sure that the resoulution screen setting is correct for the size of screen and that you dont have any strange modes set up like trying to output to 2 screens etc.

I had been using windows xp before,but now i use win 7.while using xp,all the games were running but now they are not working,what can be the cause?please tell me the way to solve this problem.


If you are having trouble with windows 7 while your playing game(s). You need to downgrade your operating system to windows XP. But before that, try to right click the game icon and choose run as administrator.

I think you need to upgrade your Windows Media Player. Open the player, goto help and click on "check for updates". Once the update is completed, your player will play DVD's and movies.

Hi im bright and my problem is am using the vista pack 1.1 and i can't play games like road rash and the rest on my PC


It appears that you are trying to run older games. these may or may not work, but your best chance is to run and install them in compatibility mode.

Right-Click the Shortcut
Select Properties
Select Compatibility Tab
Select Radio Button for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Select the Operating System for which this game was designed

If this does not work, you could go to the extreme of installing Microsoft Virtual machine, and install Windows 98 'virtually' withing that see http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/virtualpc/default.mspx

Hope this helps

Program has stopped working


Right click on the game icon, select properties and select the compatibility tab. From there check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2). It might be good to also check "Disable visual themes" and "Disable desktop composition" Hope it helps.
